Presbyterian Church of NSW and ACT – Church Consultancy Training

Tim and I joined the Presbyterian Church Consultancy Team via Zoom this and yesterday morning. We returned to the standard facilitation process before reflecting on broad types of proactive (problem solving, re-visioning, and redevelopment) and reactive (specialist) consultancies. We then explored issues facing ministers in the aftermath of the last two years of COVID19.

The resources are in the consultancy team Dropbox.

Darling Downs Presbytery Retreat

I had never been up to the Bunya Mountains in SE Queensland before, so it was great to have Monday leading four sessions at the Darling Downs Presbytery retreat.  

We looked at life cycles in rural churches, consultancy processes, and systemic health in churches.  Great to meet many of the ministers in this region. 

Renewal Retreat Facilitation Trainers Sydney

The Presbyterian Church of Australia in the State of NSW

Back to Sydney this week for several training sessions including a day with the training team for Presbyterian Renewal Retreat Facilitators for NSW, Victoria and Queensland.  It was good to hear the stories of clergy retreats, clergy wives retreats and women in ministry retreats.  Looking forward to meeting and working with other facilitators later in the year. 

Notes from our session today are being uploaded into our shared dropbox.
