A 48 hour residential course for clergy and licensed lay ministers who have changed post within the last eighteen months or so. Organised ecumenically by the Yorkshire Regional Training Partnership, this course is intended to give colleagues time to reflect together on transition,leading change, any challenges they face and on experiences in their new role.

This is not for those in their first incumbency but for those who have moved to their second or third or fourth (etc.) post or parish beyond curacy.

Some comments from previous participants:

‘This was the most helpful course I have been on since I was ordained.’

‘It was good to look objectively at change and transition in my personal context.’

‘Space and time away from parish responsibilities: all the more important when life feels too full.’

‘It was a good balance of input, discussion and time to think and relax.’

‘We were respected for the experienced priests we are and allowed and encouraged to use that experience.’

FACILITATORS: Revd Louise Taylor-Kenyon & Revd Canon Andrew Tawn (Clergy Development Officers in the Diocese of Leeds) Revd Graham Jones (Methodist Learning & Development Officer, Yorkshire Plus)
