Focus on Ministry – Anglican Diocese of Sydney Retreat Groups


I  enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the facilitators for FOM groups in the Diocese of Sydney on Monday. The location used for the training (Telford at Port Hacking Youthworks campsite) was a great spot I had not been before. Over the day we explored four areas of leadership development which can be adapted as workshops in the retreat setting: these included Self Care Strategies for Clergy, Emotional and Social Intelligence, Conflict Management and Phases and Stages of Leadership Development.
