    The role of circuit steward is one of the key lay ministries in Methodism and so deserves the best support and training possible to do the work effectively. This material has been designed to help strengthen the stewards’ work through activity, conversation and reflection. This 2 day course covers two of the four modules of this training course, with some additional reading and optional homework following each session. It is designed for new circuit stewards as part of their induction programme (plus the Creating Safer Space Foundation Module 2016). This course, or elements of it, can also be used by existing circuit stewards for continuing professional development.
    Lunch is provided.
