You’ll notice a number of differences in the diocesan Continuing Ministerial Development programme on offer this year with courses grouped under three strands: Inspiration for me, inspiration for mission and inspiration for ministry.
Bishop Peter has commended the new focus saying, “I’m really encouraged to see the training we offer focus on these three areas, which clearly align with our continued work to shape our diocesan strategy. In particular, I hope that colleagues will welcome the emphasis on the personal with the ‘inspiration for me’ strand. This reflects our need for refreshment in our personal walk with God, so that we can minister most effectively to others.”
Introducing the new programme, Revd Jane Chamberlain, Training Team Leader says, “I believe great training releases the gifts within each one of us and enables us to be the people God is calling us to be. I hope you will find the reshaped CMD programme interesting and stimulating. If there are other elements you would like to see – do get in touch!”
See and hear more from Jane in this short clip as she talks a bit more about the three strands and her hopes for the programme.
