Church…more than a preaching station?
Oswestry, Shropshire - 14th October
This one day event explores whether, and how, we can proclaim the Gospel through pastoral care. It is intended for people involved in pastoral care, ordained clergy and pastors, as well as regular members of the congregation. We will take a practical look through four workshops at how churches can structure pastoral care to respond appropriately to local needs within a rural context.
Workshop 1: Why care?
Workshop 2: Building a community of carers
Workshop 3: Pastoral care as an outreach model
Workshop 4: Pastoral care across the generations
The event costs just £15 including handouts and a light lunch.
Bookings must be made in advance and we are able to accept card or cheque payments.
Full details of the event and booking information can be found on our website here or on the Facebook event page.
A limited number of childcare places are available.
If you have any queries then please feel free to get in touch. Please also forward this to anyone who may be interested or share it on Facebook.
