Continuing Ministerial Development (Clergy)

Autumn 2023

This programme is intended for Clergy & Readers, although some events are open to the wider community, eg. Grow courses and Comms courses

Dear Colleague

CMD Clergy Programme Autumn 2023

We never stop learning in faith. We never stop learning in ministry. And learning leads to wisdom. And if there is one thing the world needs now, (apart from love, sweet love) its wisdom. Continuing Ministerial Development is all about developing wisdom – sometimes from a speaker, sometimes from a colleague and sometimes the wisdom comes from within.

As well as in-house CMD events this Autumn we’re including offerings from Sarum College, the College of Preachers, CPAS and St Martin in the Fields so something for everyone – do book in!

Revd Ian Bussell, Director of Mission & Ministry

2024 Trainings – we are starting to plan 2024 trainings, you can find some information  via this link – CMD 2024 Dates

Transforming Conversations is a professional training in coaching skills designed by 3D coaching and delivered under licence in the Diocese of Exeter by Ian Bussell and Mike Williams. Coaching is essentially the skill of helping someone think through their stuff in their own way. It’s a core skill for anyone enabling and empowering the ministry of others. This four day course is learning through practice so that, like learning to ride a bike, what feels clunky at first becomes part of your practice by day four.

Who is this for?

  • Anyone who thinks they may have the heart and the time to offer coaching to others in the diocese.
  • Anyone in a supervisory role such as training incumbents, rural/area deans and team leaders.

Others have said ‘this has transformed the way I work’, ‘the best course I’ve done’, ‘so helpful for ministry’.
