In line with Government guidance regarding Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to cancel onsite CMDs for the next few months.

CMD programme 5th edition FINAL-a

Dear Colleagues

It continues to be encouraging to see many of you at online CMD events.

Here is an updated offering.

Please note the addition of an opportunity to engage with Carla Grosch Millar from the Tragedy and Congregations Team. Numbers are strictly limited. We ran a day session before ‘lockdown’ and it was very well received

Also, we have added the opportunity for training in Mental Health First Aid.

There are still a couple of places for the online retreat with the team from Lee Abbey.

I am still keen to receive suggestions of any freely available resources that are available and helpful and suggestions for our online programme.

Finally, please keep 12 November free for a diocesan introduction to
Living in Love and Faith

Best wishes


Prebendary Philip Sourbut
Director of Mission & Ministry
