Theme: Abuse of Power in the Local Church
You are probably aware of some well publicised cases where power has been abused by church leaders. This has raised awareness of the trauma experienced by those caught up in such situations. It is important that we take time to support one another in considering and discussing this issue together that can be so damaging to the glory of God in a church.
Phil will be giving two presentations which will look firstly at setting the scene by considering the current landscape surrounding this issue along with some insight into how trauma may uniquely impact Christians, then secondly he will look at some possible ways forward for us as pastors to consider.
Session 1: Where we Currently Are – getting the issue out and on the table
Session 2: What do we Do? – moving towards a godly response
10:00 – 10:30: Coffee
10:30 – 12:00: Session 1

Before you come:
Please pray for these sessions that the Lord would give us understanding and equip us as under shepherds to serve well in our churches.
