Trauma-informed Ministry: Reflecting on Covid and moving forward in a changed world

This Workshop will explore the emotional and psychological impact of the pandemic on clergy and their congregations.

Participants will:

  • Look to the future, at our human need for connection and relationships with others, and what helps to equip and sustain us for the challenges we face in pastoral ministry and church leadership
  • Have the chance to process what happened during the pandemic and the effect it had on their wellbeing, ministry and vocation
  • Draw on neurobiology and trauma theory alongside biblical and faith resources, considering ‘where we are now’ - living in a time of uncertainty and change within the Church as we emerge from the pandemic
