What will the day include?

  1. Understanding conflict: We will share what we mean by conflict, and how it ‘looks’ in our churches; we will also begin to explore our different approaches to conflict, and how we respond.
  2. Conflict transformation skills: Working with real life scenarios, we will explore skills like: how to work constructively with disagreements in groups and meetings; how to ‘lower’ the level of conflict; making good decisions in groups.
  3. Further resources: We will offer ideas and pointers for further training, including information about courses, and local/national resources.
