COVENTRY CATHEDRAL 26-28 FEBRUARY 2013
Conflict exists in every walk of life, including the church. However, escalated and badly-handled conflict can cause long-lasting damage to the relationships and ministry of your church; and can negatively affect the church’s reputation, and individuals’ faith.
All church traditions face conflict, with tensions and power-struggles in local churches, and with challenges at national level, where intense differences can arise. Often church leaders feel ill-equipped to deal with these tensions.
The aim of the Faith in Conflict conference is to enable you to find better ways to engage with conflict in church life, connecting you with others wanting to work creatively at this; and to offer you the opportunity to learn from Christian professionals who have worked on handling and transforming conflict for many years.
By joining us in the Faith in Conflict conference you will have a unique opportunity to:
- Understand our challenges: which arise from the culture of how conflict is handled in churches
- Gain a renewed vision: of how the churches might view conflict differently
- Grow our capacity: to respond to conflict in its many forms
- Develop supportive networks: linking organisations, people and training resources
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The conference is particularly targeted at those with some oversight responsibilities within their church role, and at Christian professionals working in the wider field of conflict transformation.
We recommend booking your place early (early bird deadline is Friday 23 November) as our hunch is that the conference will sell out well ahead of February. Book now at http://faithinconflict.com/
