Online National Gathering of Methodist Chaplains

Venue: Online

One of the things I’m keen to develop as part of Methodism’s support of chaplaincy is bringing chaplains together to create supportive communities – or help to support those communities where they are already developed. With the hope that by linking into these communities it will help the Methodist Church understand the needs of chaplains and how we might develop our work to support chaplaincy – in collaboration with our valued partners.

 

In partnership with one of our Learning Regions, we are hosting an online national gathering of  Methodist chaplains.

 

The ministries team and the Southern and Islands region are hosting a national gathering of chaplains. We hope that this will bring chaplains together to share and support one another - but also provide opportunity for chaplains to share their thoughts and shape the work we do as a Church. We look forward to welcoming chaplains on 7th December, 7.00 pm until 8.30 pm. Booking for the event can be found at https://learningnetsi.org.uk/events/national-gathering-of-chaplains

‘People of Hope - In times of change’ - 2021 National Conference for School & College Chaplains

Venue:

The title of the 2021 National Conference for School & College Chaplains:
 


The conference will provide a time and space for reflection and growth as we continue to connect with others.

As many of you know ‘normally’ the National Conference is intended to be a face-to-face event, and we had hoped to provide a hybrid event. With recent announcements from the government and taking onboard research commissioned by the Society of Jesus, our conference working party have taken the decision to take the 2021 gathering online.
 
This will enable us to effectively plan and deliver a conference for you that is accessible, relevant and meaningful.

We are excited to offer an ‘unprecedented’ full day and evening of keynotes, workshops and evening celebration with spaces for reflection and worship and opportunities for networking
