Take Time Training Day

Thursday 10th May 2018
10.00am – 3.30 pm
Anniesland Methodist Worship Centre, Sutcliffe Rd, G13 1BU, Glasgow
Free of Charge

Take Time offers meditations and TakeTime Together courses, with an approach based on Ignatian Spirituality. Rev Clive McKie has piloted these course in prisons and other contexts with profound results.

This special training day will offer an opportunity for those contemplating leadership of TakeTime Together courses in their church or group to learn about the background, sample a course, and learn how to take them; since leadership is best shared, it would be good if you were accompanied by a potential co-leader.
