14 March 2019
10.00 am – 4.00 pm

Venue: Whirlow Spirituality Centre, Whirlow Grange Drive, Sheffield, S11 9RX
Led by: Ian Cowley

Why do so many clergy feel under constant pressure in ministry?  Why do some experience burnout?

During this day of reflection, intended for clergy, readers, ordinands and licensed church leaders, Ian will help us to review our model of ministry and explore how we can recapture its contemplative heart.  The day has been designed particularly with those in parish ministry in mind.

Ian Cowley is an Anglican priest who has served in parish ministry in South Africa, Sheffield, Cambridge and Peterborough. He is author of four books on spirituality, discipleship and the local church.  From 2008 to 2016, he was Co-ordinator of Spirituality and Vocations in the Diocese of Salisbury, when he developed the material for this workshop and his book of the same title. He has recently retired from full time ministry and continues to write and teach, and enjoy time to pursue recreational interests.
