The Culture of Invitation workshop is for churches and individuals who want to get better at becoming invitational. Most churches call themselves welcoming, but not many would name themselves as welcoming and inviting.
Join us for this workshop, which will:
Be an opportunity to research your own local situation and make a comparison with other churches.
Be highly suited to churches who want an example of a practical outworking of how to reach people in their community
You will leave with best practice ideas to try out immediately in your own parish which will benefit your upcoming Services and Events!

Home by Another Route: Reimagining Today’s Church

Paul Bradbury
May 16th 10am-4pm 

The Annex, St Francis Church, Salisbury, SP1 3PN
Paul Bradbury believes that a movement of the Holy Spirit is beginning to renew and reform today's church - a church marginalised and 'in exile'. Paul takes the prophet Ezekiel’s powerful image of dry skeletal human remains coming to life through the miraculous work of the Spirit of God to encourage and inspire the contemporary church to seek renewal through the Spirit.
Join him as he unpacks this compelling vision and explores the future nature of the church, its leadership and mission through the lenses of story, literature and theology of the biblical exile.
Paul Bradbury is an ordained CofE Pioneer Minister and founder of the missional community Reconnect. He leads Poole Missional Communities and is the author of 'Home By Another Route: Reimagining Today's Church'.

Relationships and Emotions for Life

Jeremy Thomson
July 4th 10am-4pm
The Great Hall, Church House, SP1 2QB
Relationships are essential to all our lives: without them we would not be human. Relationships – in families, neighbourhoods and churches – can be rewarding or pleasurable, but sometimes can be difficult or painful. God comes to us in various ways, but most profoundly God comes to us through people. Sometimes we are intensely aware of this, but more often we are hardly aware of it.
The purpose of this day is to consider some important aspects of human relationships and to reflect upon how emotions play a part in them. We will draw on resources from the Bible, Christian theology and psychology, and reflect on personal experiences. In particular, we will explore the challenges of conflict and forgiveness since they are essential to growth and maturity.
Jeremy Thomson is a Christian educator who has worked in various formal and informal contexts for over forty years, aiming to build the church and equip people for creative discipleship. Following an early career in research engineering, he spent a number of years in Christian ministry (five in the Church of England) before becoming a volunteer relationship counsellor. He studied Biblical Interpretation and Systematic Theology at postgraduate level, and discovered the joys of facilitating adult learning. He was Vice Principal of Oasis College of Higher Education in London until retirement in 2017. His book, Relationships and Emotions After Christendom (Paternoster, 2016), grew out of educating students about theology, emotions and relationships, as they prepared for various leadership roles.

Pray+Serve=Grow? Part II

Steve Inglis
September 30th 10am-1pm
The Diocesan Education Centre, Wilton, SP2 0GF
The equation that is not an equation.
A lively session back in October 2019 kicked off this exploration of what it means to Pray, Serve and Grow.
We framed the conversation, began to look at the question of how to move from social to missional and explored the question of timing alongside mission on the margins and making prayer central to all we do.
And as you can imagine, this uncovered a whole range of further thoughts, questions, challenges, and opportunities.
So now for part II.
An opportunity to continue to unpack our place within the narrative and explore some of the language that so easily seems to get lost in translation.
We will look at where we are now and also what we are seeing, hearing and experiencing in our respective contexts.
We will also pick up some of the key threads that came out of Part I, particularly around translating the language of ‘Church (including dirty words – such as Evangelism), faithful presence, cultivation of the curious, blessing our communities, being snakey, and a myriad of other themes.
Whether you were part of the conversation in part I or not, you are invited to join for this opportunity to delve a little deeper. This will be a great opportunity to share and learn from one another as we explore what it does, and could, look like to authentically Pray, Serve and Grow.

‘It’s not really Church though is it?’– understanding new congregations alongside traditional Church

Alan Jeans
October 27th 10am-1pm
Dinton Village Hall, SP3 5EB
We have many new worshipping communities across the Diocese, each offering opportunities for growing new disciples. How do these relate to our traditional congregations, and how can we support and encourage these communities to be seen as authentic Christian Churches?
