Baptist Churches of NSW and ACT – Church Consultancy Training

Tim and I were privileged to spend time with the Specialised Consultancy Team and Regional Ministers at the Ministry and Learning Centre in Macquarie Park. We spent time reflecting on Acts 15 before working through a range of resources to assist churches who are navigating conflict. We outlined Christopher Moore’s 5 causal elements of conflict before revisiting the 5 categories of conflict. We included practical skilling around facilitating listening groups and the Samoan circle. We shared updated versions of resources. Alan Kelshaw, one of the highly experienced former members of the team has recently published on navigating conflict and gave us permission to use his helm model. See Navigating Community Conflict for more on the HELM model.

The notes and resources can be found in SharePoint.
