Continuing Ministerial Development (Readers)

CMD opportunities for Readers in the Diocese come in a number of forms. Our main offering is the Readers Conference at Brunel Manor, Torquay and, so, do please keep the dates 24-26 February 2017 free. Additionally there will be an opportunity to hear from Gertrud Sollars, the Vice-Chair of Central Readers’ Council, & Warden of readers for Guildford Diocese on the morning of the licensing service – October 1st. You will receive further details about that in due course.

There are a wide variety of CMD events on offer for 2016-2017: please take a look at the Reader CMD Brochure 2016 to 2017. In this brochure you will find details of some events that are part of the CMD programme for clergy and open also to Readers. Inevitably some events will be oversubscribed. The easiest way to book is to complete the booking form below. If you include an e-mail address in your booking form, you will receive a confirmation that we have received your booking and 7 – 10 days before an event you should receive joining instructions. Most events are in Exeter and lunch is normally provided, but do check the joining instructions, as timings may change slightly. I really hope that you can protect your diary, but it really helps us if you need to cancel if you let us know in good time, not least because we may well have a waiting list.

At the back of the brochure you will find details of some other events that you may find of interest.

To cancel a place on a course, or if you encounter any difficulties when booking, please email Charlotte Vickers. 

I look forward to seeing you,

Best wishes,
