Growing Through Conflict Foundation Day

Our churches face change, encounter difference and can struggle to manage conflict. We know conflict can be both creative and destructive.

"It really was one of the best training sessions I've ever been to."
"I now have the confidence to try different responses to conflict and to be more conscious of other people's styles"

What will the day include?

  • Understanding conflict: We will share what we mean by conflict, and how it 'looks' in our churches; we will begin to explore our different approaches to conflict, and how we respond.
  • Conflict resolution skills: Working with real life scenarios, we will offer skills and techniques : how to work constructively with disagreements in groups and meetings; how to 'lower' the level of conflict; good decision-making.
  • Further resources: We will offer ideas and pointers for further training.

    Who is it for?
    Anyone who wants to understand more about conflict in churches.

    What do I need to bring?
    A 'live' experience of conflict

    How much will it cost?
    Free--bring your lunch,
    teas and coffees provided
