We've created a series of free webinars to offer practical ideas for Church leaders at a local level in our present situation.

We hope these sessions will provide access to individuals, information and resources that will help to make a real difference in your church and community.

Webinars will take place on Zoom, lasting an hour (unless otherwise stated). They will focus on a specific theme, featuring some of the National Evangelism & Discipleship team plus other guests, and will include a Q&A.

Spaces are limited and registration is required in advance.

Full details, including sign-up links, are included below.

New webinars will be added shortly...

CofE Vision for the 2020s: Mixed Ecology Focus

This session will focus on what it means to be a church where mixed ecology is the norm.

How can each parish or benefice prayerfully discern what new thing God might be calling them to do to serve the community they represent?

What would it mean for people in our communities to have ready access to an attractive expression of church in at least one of the 4 ‘spaces’ in their lives: around their home, their place of education/work, their social activities, or their digital connections?

We'll be hearing about the experiences of our panel as well as engaging with your questions.

Plus stories and experiences from those who are pioneering new ways of reaching their communities

Part of a series of webinars that explore what it means to be a church that is centred on Jesus Christ and shaped by Jesus Christ – a church that is simpler, humbler, bolder.

Find out more about the emerging vision and strategic priorities for the Church for the next decade and take the opportunity to ask your questions.

This is a work in progress and we need to work together to realise this vision. As well as hearing from the panel, there will be time for your questions and to find out what this priority means for you, your church, or diocese.

We want to engage with as many people as possible through these webinars. Please do forward this invitation to your church networks and colleagues.

Panellists include: Mike Harrison, Bishop of Dunwich and Mike Haslam, Chaplaincy Development Adviser

Date and time: Wednesday 20th October, 11am - 12.00pm

Toxic Leadership

This is the opposite of servant leadership. Many of us may have experienced toxic leadership practices, they still persist amidst the everyday push and pull of organisational life. In this session we consider some of the marks of toxic leadership and the kinds of safeguards that we might adopt to mitigate their negative impacts.

The second of two sessions hosted by Dave Male, Director of Evangelism and Discipleship and Professor Andrew Parker, a freelance leadership consultant with specific expertise in the 1-1 coaching of aspiring and in situ high-level leaders. They will be joined by various guests to discuss these two key areas for all leaders.

Date and time: This webinar has been postponed. A new date will be confirmed in due course
