  • Tuning In - Using Visual Display Systems to Support Liturgy

  • Laying Down a Safe Foundation in Serving Others

    Join us for an opportunity to develop the steps in laying down a safe foundation in our ministry work. This workshop will explore how we safeguard the people we minister to, the Parish, the Diocese and ourselves. Building a safe ministry focuses on spiritual, physical and emotional well-being, participation and safety for ourselves and others. It requires an understanding of risk management, exercise and legal responsibility but also an expression of Micah 6:8 ‘to see justice, love mercy and walk humbly before our God’. Ultimately, a strong and safe foundation, with Jesus as our cornerstone, allows for the most God-honouring ministry work to be undertaken.
