Effective Listening

Practice Module 1

Practice Module 1
Established in 1983 by Bishop Morris Maddocks, Acorn has been at the forefront of providing people, regardless of their circumstances, background or life choices, with the opportunity to experience the `shalom’ – a life-encompassing peace – that is at the heart of the Christian message. As one aspect of this work Acorn offers training in the essential areas of Healing, Reconciliation and Listening.

Many of us today have discovered for ourselves the difference it makes when someone really listens to us. Being well listened to can be a life-changing experience, and yet sadly also one which is comparatively rare in our busy world. This module introduces the ministry of listening as a foundational element of pastoral ministry. On this day delegates will learn active reflective listening skills. For those wishing to build their skills still further, you may also be interested in the more advanced module running on Saturday 25 November.

Cecil has been supporting The Listening Place, and Acorn Training Courses since he officially retired from full time ministry about 7 years ago. Prior to that he ministered in Methodist Circuits in the Midlands, in Africa, and has been a Franciscan friar. Currently he is caring for a Methodist church family in Downton. Julia is a lay preacher of the Methodist Church and a founder member of The Listening Place in Salisbury. She has 15 years’ experience of Listening and training people on Acorn Courses in a variety of locations.
