Introduction to Biblical Care and Counselling

View on map

Understand yourself and others from a biblical perspective, with the aim of developing and expanding your listening skills. The Introduction to Biblical Care and Counselling (IBCC) five-day course teaches basic counselling principles within a Christian context. It is designed for anyone who wants to learn about themselves and how to help others effectively, no matter how much or little previous knowledge and experience they have. It is a reflective course; interactive and personal, using practical methods and theory.

Most people need help at times as they journey through life. A sympathetic listening ear is always appreciated, but sometimes people need more. You can be equipped to play a part in the lives of those who are struggling, enabling them to move forward and discover the freedom to grow into all that God desires them to be. Over the five days you'll cover topics including: * The biblical basis for care and counselling * Reason and causes for problems * Developing basic counselling skills * A clear framework for the counselling process

The course is ideal for anyone who is: *Looking for basic training for pastoral care *Wanting to help people in everyday life *Running a small group *In part-time or full-time Christian ministry *Thinking about full counselling training

The IBCC provides excellent foundational teaching as a stand-alone course, but is also an ideal opportunity to find out if a Counselling programme with Waverley Abbey College could be the next step for further training.

Grief can be overwhelming, particularly if we have lost a partner or child, or if our loved one’s passing was sudden or traumatic. The aim of this supported retreat is to better equip us to cope with our life-changing loss. We will explore the reality of grief as well as the hope Jesus offers as we consider practical and creative ways to live with our loss and journey onwards through life. This conference is held at The Beacon Centre.

My Spirit Rejoices: Women's Voices in the Bible

17 November 2018

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

Only 1% of the words spoken in the Bible are spoken by women, but all of them are extraordinary – filled with prophetic and poetic fire. For a thousand years, scholars and theologians have focussed on men’s voices and stories in the Bible and that has brought us vital, rich and multilayered insights, but the women have until now been largely overlooked. Feminist theology has led to revelatory new insights about what we can learn from the words and experiences of women in the Bible, and what attending to their voices might mean for us today.

Liz Adekunle will explore the stories of some of the most fascinating Biblical women, the importance of their roles and the significance of their ministries, focussing particularly on the compelling stories of Hagar in the Book of Genesis and Mary, the mother of Jesus.

The Ven Liz Adekunle is the Archdeacon of Hackney, a member of the Archbishops’ Task Group on Evangelism and Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen. She was previously Chaplain and Acting Dean at St John’s College, Cambridge and is currently working on a PhD in Feminist Theology at Cambridge University.

The popular Great Chapters of the Bible series covers some of the most significant chapters in the Bible. Each course covers three aspects of study: the chapter’s significance within its book, its importance within the whole biblical redemptive narrative and the significance of the chapter to Christian life.

Philip will be focusing on the theme of Thankfulness, beginning with the Psalms and then focusing on Paul’s prayers in Ephesians; then in more depth, his prayers in Colossians through which letter Thankfulness runs like a thread.

Prepare the Way of the Lord: Music for Advent

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

Advent is traditionally the season when we reflect on humanity’s relationship with God through the lives of the Old and New Testament Fathers and Mothers of the faith.

It is also a season which calls us to slow down and contemplate the things of eternity. One of the ways we can slow down our busy lives and minds is by taking the time to listen attentively to music.

This Advent we will explore in music and words the human lives which tell the story of salvation from its very beginning in the Garden of Eden to Mary’s song of joy as she receives the world-changing news of the coming of the Messiah. Through the Biblical accounts and the music which has been inspired by them, we will focus on Adam and Eve, Abraham and Isaac, the great Prophets including Isaiah, Ezekiel and John the Baptist, and Mary the Mother of God.

The four week course will include music from the Renaissance to the 21st century, by composers including Bach, Haydn, Elgar, Arvo Pärt and Benjamin Britten.

Andrew Carwood is the Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral, the Founder-Conductor of The Cardinall’s Musick, an internationally-regarded singer and winner of the 2010 Gramaphone Awards Recording of the Year for his recording of William Byrd’s music.

Cost £65. A simple bursary scheme is open to anyone for whom the cost would make this difficult to attend. Please contact us to apply.

What is Prayer?

02 December 2018

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

‘The will to pray is the essence of prayer’ wrote Thomas Merton, and ‘the secret of prayer is a hunger for God’. Stephen Cottrell describes himself as ‘an experienced beginner’ at prayer who has never got much beyond this, but says his long apprenticeship has taught him that the beginning and end of prayer is the longing to know God and to be known by God.

But for many people profound questions remain. Is God really listening? Does what we pray affect what God does? Also, why is it that everyone struggles with prayer; shouldn’t it be easy? Stephen Cottrell will reflect on what prayer is and how we might begin, or begin again, to pray more authentically.

The Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell is the Bishop of Chelmsford. He has written widely on evangelism, spirituality and discipleship, and is the author of numerous books including How to Pray: Alone, with Others, at Any Time, in Any Place (Church House Publishing, 3rd edition 2010).

Capernwray Hall is a beautiful place for a holiday at any time of the year but at Christmas we pull out all the stops! When we add the Christmas trees, lights and decorations to this grand manor house – when the fires are lit and when the house fills with adults and children it becomes a spectacular place to spend some cold wintry days. As we join together and celebrate Christmas we can never forget the arrival of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem. Our Bible teaching sessions for adults, teens and children ensure that we celebrate not only His birth, but His life and His continual presence in our lives. Join us to celebrate in style!

One of the things Jesus does most is heal people. In his ministry on earth he performs numerous miraculous cures, restoring sight, healing leprosy and curing paralysis. He also charges his followers – us – to do the same. What are we to make of this in the 21st century?

Gillian Straine is a scientist and priest. From both perspectives, she says that healing is a subtle, multilayered thing, and in this afternoon we will explore healing in the Bible and contemporary science. We’ll also look at the role of prayer, consider the question of divine intervention, and what the nature of healing really is and why it plays such a central role in Jesus’ ministry.

The Revd Dr Gillian Straine trained as a professional scientist before being ordained, and is now the Director of the Guild of Health and St Raphael in the Diocese of London. She is the author of Introducing Science and Religion: A Path Through Polemic (SPCK 2013) and Cancer: A Pilgrim Companion (SPCK 2017). She was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 21, and has been in remission since 2002.

A good novel expands our sense of the complexity of human life. Richard Harries says that at a time when so much religious language has become either unbelievable or alien to many, it is often in works of literature that that we can begin to discover again the enchantment of the Christian faith and attempt to understand it in the texture of real life.

In his latest book, Haunted by Christ: Modern Writers and the Struggle for Faith (SPCK 2018), he explores some of the novelists, playwrights and poets who have meant most to him, including Dostoevsky, Emily Dickinson, Marilynne Robinson and Philip Pullman. He will explore why it is that literature can teach us so much about how to be a human being and a person of faith.

The Rt Revd Richard Harries was formerly the Bishop of Oxford and has been described by Rowan Williams as one of our greatest Christian intellectuals. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the author of numerous works of popular and academic theology.

What is Christian Spirituality? Carys Walsh says that it is nothing less than experiencing the transformative power of God’s love, and living this out. She also says that Christian Spirituality is immensely rich and varied, made new by God in every generation.

In this afternoon we take an introductory look at the dynamic nature of Christian spirituality. We will explore some of its contours and touch on just a few of its many and varied expressions, from the 6th century Rule of St Benedict, a model of how to live a life of faith, balance and harmony which continues to enrich lives inside and outside monasteries today, to the Franciscan vision of freedom in poverty and joy in creation. We will also explore the Anglican tradition, deeply rooted in the sense of place, the beauty of language and the poetic tradition.

The Revd Dr Carys Walsh is in charge of training for curates in the Diocese of Peterborough. She has a Phd in Christian Spirituality, focussing on the Sacramental Vision of R S Thomas and was until recently Tutor and Lecturer in Christian Spirituality at St Mellitus College in the Diocese of London.

The Merciful Humility of God

03 March 2019

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

In fourth century North Africa, a young man called Augustine spent years searching for a way to satisfy his intellectual and spiritual curiosity. When Augustine finally ‘converted’ to the Christian faith, he wrote that what he found there, and nowhere else, was the ‘humble God’. Nowhere else had he found a God who comes to live with human beings, sharing their lives and even their death. In Christianity he found a transforming faith, centred on love, that invited rather than demanded or judged.

And it is not only Augustine who has encountered the merciful humility of God as the most powerful force imaginable. Jane Williams will explore how God works for our salvation in ways so gentle, so subtle and so apparently vulnerable that it is easy to overlook their force, calling us to walk in the paths of humility for our own sake and for the sake of the world.

Dr Jane Williams is Director of Studies at St Mellitus College in London. She is the author of academic and popular works of theology including Faces of Christ: Jesus in Art and Approaching Easter. Her latest book, The Merciful Humility of God, is the Bloomsbury Lent Book for 2019.

Join us at Horwood House for MODIFY 2019. Our theme takes us to the heart of what Activate is all about- reaching the lost. As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:20-22, the way to do this is to find common ground, embracing what is similar with those you meet, without compromising on truth. Like a chameleon, we can adapt and modify our ourselves to make ourselves more approachable, more welcoming, without changing who we are and what we believe.

To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law.

[General]

Imagining Peace

30 March 2019

Royal Foundation of St Katharine, 2 Butcher Row, London E14 8DS

View on map

Autumn 2018 is the centenary of the end of the 1914-18 war - ‘the war to end all wars’. Since then, there has not been a single day when the world has been at peace. Why is peace so hard, and conflict so universal?

Jesus says that blessed – happy – are the peacemakers. But he doesn’t say it’s easy. In this reflective day, we will look at peace and conflict within ourselves, in our communities and in politics. We will explore the obstacles and opportunities for transformation through Bible stories, our own experiences, and the stories we tell about ourselves and others, including Pádraig Ó Tuama’s experiences of peacemaking and conflict resolution in Northern Ireland.

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and theologian based in Belfast. He teaches on religion, storytelling and conflict resolution, and is the leader of the Corrymeela Community, the longest-established ecumenical peace and reconciliation community in Northern Ireland. His books include In the Shelter: Finding a Home in the World (Hodder 2015) and Daily Prayer with the Corrymeela Community (Canterbury Press 2017).

We are very grateful to our partners at St Katharine’s for their generosity in co-hosting our reflective days.

£45 per reflective day. Bursaries are available for those for whom the charge would make it difficult to attend: please contact us for details.
