    Lunch is included in this day event. Book a place here https://advanced-module-perth.eventbrite.co.uk

    A reminder of those Required to Attend:

    • Safeguarding coordinator – Circuit
    • Safeguarding Officer – District
    • Members of the District Safeguarding Group
    • Members of the District Policy Committee
    • All presbyters or deacons with an active preaching or pastoral ministry including those supernumerary ministers who have pastoral care of a church
    • Those who are in paid employment or a voluntary role which includes leadership within the Methodist Church, which involves direct work with children, youth or vulnerable adults
    • Lay persons who are appointed to exercise pastoral leadership within a local church
    • Local preachers
    • Worship leaders
    • Safeguarding officer – church

    Warmly invited but not mandatory

    • Supernumerary ministers apart from those who have pastoral care of a church
    • It has not been possible to create a standard list. There should not be too many varied roles and responsibilities represented at the training since the material focuses on leadership responsibilities rather than general safeguarding awareness. However there needs to be flexibility for inclusion where this would be helpful. This decision making should form part of the responsibility of the District Safeguarding Group when planning the provision of Advanced Module day sessions, across the District.

    We are now taking bookings for the Take Time training day via https://taketime.eventbrite.co.uk

    At the heart of Taketime is the Ignatian idea of an imagined encounter with the Jesus of the Bible in which we are invited to step into an episode from the New Testament and imagine a conversation with Jesus. Taketime meditations use your imagination to provide a calm, comfortable space in which to meet God. Anyone can use the meditations, regardless of background or religion, and in a variety of settings to suit each person or group. Although the meditations are each based on an episode from the Christian gospels, no religious knowledge or background is required.

    This training day will provide opportunities to experience Taketime and learn how to facilitate others in groups for Taketime Together. Lunch is included. Registration and coffee/tea are available from 10am.

    For more information email Gary Williams darlowl@methodistchurch.org.uk or visit the Taketime website http://taketime.org.uk
