We are excited that CPAS have two one-day training events booked here at St Mary’s, Ashton on Mersey, Sale. The events are part of a series but are also standalone events. They are:

Nurturing - Biblical Style on 30 October 2019 and
Leading against the odds, 4 March 2020.

Both days run from 10:00am to 3:30pm and will be led by John Dunnett, the CPAS Director.
Each day is suitable for clergy and significant lay leaders (e.g. staff, wardens, licensed people and ministry team leaders). 
Bookings can be made for both days or for one day via the links to the CPAS website below. St Mary’s members can download a booking form here and return to the church office with payment.

Nurturing - Biblical Style, 30 October 2019

The challenge to make disciples and grow leaders is core to the business of being a local church. Scripture has many examples of how this nurturing should take place within the kingdom of God. This day will explore a number of these biblical examples and offer tools to enable the biblical principles to be applied effectively in the nurture of others.

Leading against the odds, 4 March 2020

As the gap between prevailing cultural narratives and biblical worldview widens, it's no wonder that many church leaders are beginning to feel as though they are ministering in a kind of quasi exile. This event will examine the leadership experience of Daniel and others biblical characters to identify what is involved in witnessing and leading in a context that is either ambivalent or even hostile to the gospel
