School for Parish Development

Working closely with the Diocese of New Westminster, the Diocese of Ottawa is ready to launch Ottawa’s School for Parish Development February 2018!

Rooted in the Anglican ethos, the School shapes Church leaders, both lay and clergy, to support and foster healthy, sustainable congregations. The skills and knowledge learned equip people on the individual, team, and whole system levels. Completing the program, you will be prepared to recognize your current reality, discern the future, and offer strategy, goals and actions to move forward.

Participants will learn through plenary and small group sessions about change processes, facilitation, congregational and organizational development, personality type, and trust development. Working a series of models, case studies, and facilitated conversations, you will finish the two-year program over a course of eight weekends, confident in your ability to put the knowledge to relevant and productive practice!

Registrants are encouraged to come in congregational teams of at least two or three people of clergy and laity, as teams are proven more likely to create successful, positive change.
Sessions for 2018 are being held at St Helen’s on …
February 02 – 03,
June 01 – 02,
September 14 – 15,
November 23 – 24

Registration will be capped at 30 participants, but a wait list will be established.
