The Diocese of London is richly blessed by dedicated community focused chaplains. This is an opportunity to connect and to learn together with other like-minded chaplains across the capital.
Community Chaplain: It’s the activity of the individual in their community, not necessarily their job title. An individual who through their role is intentionally offering personal and emotional support along with practical help into a community which is in addition to the normal life of their church.
Learning Community: a chance to gather around a theme which unites us, to hear from each other, share our highs and lows; to learn from each other and to spur each other on.
So this is a chance for Community Chaplains in London to gather together, encourage each other and to collectively sharpen our practice
It’s our pleasure to invite Jon Kuhrt of West London Mission is joining us again to explore this topic. Ministry is a team activity and for those of us with the honour of leading and managing team(s) the question remains: How do we best support, nurture, encourage and challenge our team(s) as together we seek the welfare of our communities?
At this learning community, we’ll unpack how we become the leaders and managers our team(s) need us to be.
If you want to join us, please email Chantal
