Growing Through Conflict
26th February 2016, St John's Mill

"I now have the confidence to try different responses to conflict & to be more conscious of other people's styles."

The Growing through Conflict network was set up by Churches Together in Cumbria to embrace difference within our churches, to offer resources and to support to equip leaders to respond to escalating conflict within our churches communities, so enabling a transformation of relationships.

The 'Growing through Conflict' day enables leaders to understand conflict, explore what conflict 'looks like' in our churches and to consider our different approaches and responses to conflict. We offer skills and techniques that can be used when working in areas of conflict. We consider how to work constructively with disagreements in groups and meetings, how to 'lower' the level of conflict and different ways of decision making in groups.

The North West & Mann Discipleship and Learning Network are offering this day at venues across our region, in partnership with Place for Hope .

This day is for those in leadership in churches, lay and ordained. This includes ministers, deacons, District Reconciliation group members, youth leaders, family workers, church/circuit stewards — to name but a few roles. You will be asked to bring a completed questionnaire to indentify your own style of responding to conflict, and to bring a 'live' experience of conflict.

For more information about the day, contact Brec Seaton: seatonb@methodistchurch.org.uk or take a look at Learning Network's website.

To book a place on a day, please contact the Regional Administrator, Rob Glassonbury: chester.stoke@btconnect.com
