I really enjoyed working with our Mentor Equipping trainers in Sydney, Peter Moore and Sally Jones to launch the first cohort of trainees in the accredited version of the MEQ course. The training is a development of the course first put together by Les Scarborough. It has been extensively updated and is now offered as an Australian College of Theology program. Our first residential is just complete and there are two more workshops in this unit. A second cohort is due to start in January – please contact SMBC if your are interested.
