Our Priorities for 2019/2020

Although we will aim to help you with any learning or development that you or your church need, we also have key areas of work that we are focussing on in any given year. These are chosen in consultation with both national and local leaders. If your area of interest isn't on this list, then please still get in touch. Our priorities this year are: 

  • Supporting the focus on Our Calling within our Districts
  • The Year of Story – confident, personal evangelism
  • Supporting Children and Young People and those working with them
  • Support for Lay Employees
  • Candidate support
  • Worship
  • Pioneer Community of Practice
  • Supporting and resourcing Local Leadership
  • Supervision training for Supervisees
  • Safeguarding Advanced Module
