Tim and I were with the EPIC (Equipping Priests in Charge) training program for the Diocese of Melbourne at St. Hillary’s Kew on Tuesday.
This was a day focused on Healthy Ministry. We explored the unique dynamics of Christian ministry and its occupational hazards and then spent time reflecting on areas of vulnerability and their implications for self-care.
The brainstorms we conducted today and the presentations we worked through are all listed below.
The files themselves are available to participants through the EPIC program Dropbox.
It is great being back at Wycliffe Retreat Centre, Kangaroo Ground for three days with Anglican Clergy from the Diocese of Melbourne. We are exploring lots of aspects of conflict and reflecting on how to build healthy conflict competent church communities. Links to extra resources follow:
I always enjoy the first training day of a new EPIC (Enabling Priests in Charge) cycle. It was great to listen to the wide range of self-care strategies already in place for clergy and to help them reflect on additional strategies. I enjoyed hearing Grant Bickerton present his research findings yet again.
