Refresh & Resource – a conference for pastoral people in the local church

It is so encouraging to see the church increasingly engaging with society and serving those in need, but are we equipped to care effectively for those who become part of the church community? Maybe you are supporting people with complex needs and feel exhausted and alone. If so, this conference is for you!

We want to provide an opportunity for you to gather with other people who are involved in pastoral care or leadership in the local church to be refreshed and resourced. We are really keen to see church teams come along together and believe it will be a real blessing to you and your church.

During the day there will be time for worship, teaching, encouragement and prayer as well as a choice of equipping and awareness seminars. Our keynote speaker will be Brian Draper(author, regular on Radio 4’s Thought for the Day and described by Oliver James as ‘Britains foremost popular spiritual thinker‘). We also have David Sinclair (Director of Pastoral Care UK) and Carolyn Bramhall (author of ‘Am I a good girl yet’ and Director of Heart 4 Truth).

Seminars include:

Pastoral Care and Safeguarding
Understanding and caring for people in the church with poor mental health
‘Do not be afraid’ – a look at fear and anxiety
Introduction to Truth Teams
A Christian approach to mindfulness
Pastoral Care and Counselling

There will also be resources and displays from relevant organisations and time to network with others.
