Join us for this special event
Pastoral and spiritual care is shifting. Ethics in ministry is heading towards the ever changing, new look landscape of pastoral practice. It brings with it accountability, responsibility and competency. How do we as pastoral practitioners walk towards this new horizon when what we have always known is shifting? We need to look at new ways to offer pastoral and spiritual care to all people irrespective of their religious belief or whether they are of no belief. The Pastoral Strength conference will explore the issues surrounding this constant shift in education, ethics and how to successfully care for the marginalised. Join us for the opportunity to listen to and engage with a diverse range of speakers, and attend some interesting workshops.
