Leadership Conference

by ajack last modified 23 Mar, 2022 10:00 AM

‘Sustaining Vision – Spiritual Flourishing’ 26th May 2022, 9.00am – 3.30pm at the Guildhall, Salisbury.

This will be the first time the Diocese of Salisbury has hosted a joint Church and School Leaders Conference and we are genuinely excited at the prospect of bringing together church and school leaders as we explore the theme of ‘Sustaining Vision – Spiritual Flourishing’

Confirmed speakers for the day are:

Revd Steve Chalke MBE founder of Oasis who will be exploring the development of ‘spiritual capital’ in the local community, and the potential of the church and school partnership.

Sonia Thompson Head teacher and Director of St Matthew’s Research School, Birmingham who will explore ‘standing in the gap’ – embedding vision through church, school and home.

Andy Wolfe Deputy Chief Education Officer who will be focussing on ‘sustaining vision as a leader and the ecology of flourishing’.

Lucy Moore Head of the Growing Faith Foundation who will give an overview of the work and aspiration of the Growing Faith Foundation.

Highlighting the significance of this conference Bishop Karen, Acting Bishop of Salisbury writes, ‘This is an exciting opportunity for local church and school leaders to come together around the important topic of spiritual flourishing. School communities and church congregations both have a significant part to play in the shaping of good local community, whether in our towns, villages or urban conurbations and this Conference will provide an opportunity to explore the landscape and to consider how our vision for those communities to be spiritually healthy, flourishing, generous and hospitable can be sustained. We have some excellent speakers, and I would encourage you to sign up quickly to secure your place.’

By the end of the day, it is our hope that:

school leaders will have developed a deeper understanding and gained practical tools to enable you to embed your understanding of SIAMS and your school’s Christian vision.

church leaders will have developed a deeper understanding of the opportunities that exist in collaboration with school leaders to shape and impact the mission of the local church

School and church leaders will have generated thinking and learning together that will inform their future working enabling schools and churches to live out God’s transforming presence



We look forward to welcoming you on the 26th May!

With all good wishes,

Jonathan Triffitt
Director Mission and Ministry & Deputy Diocesan Secretary

Assistant Director of Education
