Positive working together

Within the church we believe that everyone should be enabled to flourish, to become the people whom God created them to be. Promoting positive working relationships is a key part of enabling individuals and communities to flourish.

Starting from a distinctively Christian standpoint creates an opportunity for individuals associated with the Church to behave in a manner which models the very highest standards of human interaction and relationships. On an everyday basis high standards of behaviour require attention to how individuals communicate with each other, how people are treated, how information is managed and shared and how difference is understood and embraced.[1]

Positive Working Together encourages us to reflect on the importance of the way in which we engage and interact with each other within the life of the church and the wider community.

A key focus of the work is to provide a range of resources that enable leaders, lay and ordained, to be more resilient and better equipped in engaging with and responding positively to situations of transition, change and conflict, and preventing bullying and harassment so that we can model positive working together in the life of the church and wider community.

Positive Working Together is the job of everybody in the Church and the resources found on these pages aim to help everybody play their part.
