Leading Well Under Pressure: Workshop, Bloomsbury – A workshop training day for people in church leadership

September 14 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm -£75.00  (£60 per person for groups of 4 or more)  Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, London

Facing challenging times

We live in times which make demands on leaders in every context. The pace can result in stress that seems unrelenting. Burn-out is common; resilience is essential.

In the anxious climate of society as a whole, leaders in church contexts can feel particularly vulnerable. They know that self-sacrifice goes with the territory, but this is something more. Everything is put to the test: attitude, approach, and awareness of risks. Ministry in the church can seem like a bottomless pit of expectations.

Such pressure presents challenges, both spiritual and practical. How to take clear and considered action? How to read the context? How to know yourself and understand others, so that responsibility can be properly shared?

Want to be better equipped?

This workshop is designed for people who are part of a church’s leadership group (eg a staff team, ministry team, eldership, diaconate, church council), especially those with pastoral responsibility. The aim is to give you fresh confidence, and renewed hope. Full details click here
