Continuing Ministerial Development (Clergy)

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

We will make you aware should we be in the position to run further CMDs
in the current training programme.

with prayers for you all in these challenging times.

Here is the CMD programme for 2019-2020. Please click on the following link: CLERGY CMD BROCHURE 2019-20 final-1

I hope that you will find a number of events that interest you.
Additional events may be added during the year and we will email you when this happens.

I encourage you to take a look at what is on offer here and to book up.  Attending a training event such as these can give us new perspectives, as well as the opportunity to share our experience with others. Of course it comes at a cost; our work does not go away while we are out of the Mission Community. It is our responsibility to feed ourselves though. Taking time out to do so can give us new energy as well as new skills and perspectives. It is part of the task of ministry.

I encourage you to take a look and book some training now. Inevitably some events will be oversubscribed. If the system does not allow you to book, please contact Cathy Scoffield email or Jenny Beesley email to be added to a waiting list.

The easiest way to book is to follow the instructions below and book online. You will receive a confirmation that we have received your booking and 7 – 10 days before an event you should receive joining instructions. If that does not happen, please contact Cathy or Jenny.

Most events are in Exeter and lunch is normally provided, but do check the joining instructions, as timings may change slightly. There is an opportunity to tell us of any dietary needs when booking.

I really hope that you can protect your diary, but it helps so much, if, in the event that you absolutely need to cancel, you let us know in good time, not least because we may well have a waiting list or may have paid for a lunch that is not needed.

I look forward to seeing you,

Best wishes,

Prebendary Philip Sourbut
Director of Mission & Ministry
