Events and Study Days

for 2018

The postponed Learning Communities event for Readers will now take place on Saturday 5th May. Whether or not you were originally signed up for the 3rd March, please respond to this email by contacting Linda Wass ( linda.wass@lincoln.anglican.org ) if you wish to attend the study day. Event Programme Readers as a Resource for the Diocesan Strategy and Learning Communities. A practical theological day looking at the role of the Reader in implementing the diocesan strategy. The day will be led by David Dadswell (Bishop’s Strategic Implementation Adviser) who writes: “Many of you will have participated in one of the presentations around the deaneries about the diocese’s strategy and the learning communities. As you may remember, a key philosophy behind both is that they are local and inclusive. In terms of the work of Readers in the mission and ministry of the diocese, skilled, articulate, theological lay leadership will be crucial in our progressing as a diocese. In order to explore what Readers might contribute as part of this, the days in March will involve first looking at the theological resourcing and input that Readers can provide in explaining and supporting the strategy and learning communities. Second they will involve getting some skills training in the way learning communities will be facilitated and grown as engines of improvement and support.” Saturday 12th May  - Readers Quiet Day at Edenham Regional House 9.30am-3.30pm If you have not already registered, please consider attending a Reader Quiet Day organised by Elloes Area: Leader: Sheila Addison Theme: What kind of God do we believe in?
