Dear Colleagues

Here is the latest update of the online CMD offering. It has been very encouraging indeed to see large numbers sign up for these events.
Some have hit capacity. We have increased capacity for a number
of events and so if they appear here there is space at the time of writing.

Simply sign up through the online booking system and you will be sent a log in code plus a guide to using Zoom if you have not used it before.

Please be sure to book 24 hours in advance of an event so that we have time to send you log in details and any notes. If a course is oversubscribed it will no longer be shown on the booking system. However, you can join a waiting list by emailing m&

If you are not able to join a course you have booked, do let us know so that we can offer the place to someone else.

These events will be kept short – typically no more than 2 hours with a 20/30 minute break in the middle.

I hope to see you onscreen soon.


Prebendary Philip Sourbut
Director of Mission & Ministry

Any problems with bookings, please contact Jenny or Cathy – email to be added to a waiting list.
Please note that there is a glitch on the confirmation email for CMDs. In the event of a query,
please contact Mission & Ministry team not your Archdeacon’s office as stated on the confirmation email.
