EXPLORING: What are the opportunities for us to work together better across ministry settings, and how might we do that?
This afternoon will provide a ‘taster’ of the facilitated Talking Circle process by inviting participants into a ‘real’ talking circle around the question above.
The Talking Circle uses a ‘Talking Piece’ which is passed around, to help create conditions of deep and respectful speaking and listening, while also retaining the freedom to not speak. Your choice to participate, at whatever level you wish, will be respected.
Following the experience of the Talking Circle, we will have a debrief session to reflect on the process.
DATE: Sunday, 6th August
TIME: Arrive from 1:30 PM for 2:00-5:00 PM
Please stay on for Evensong at 5:30 PM followed by a festive supper for the Transfiguration.
