"Why Listening Matters and how can we do it better?"
This workshop looks at the vitally important pastoral skill of listening, and listening at depth. What are some of the basic skills required ?

How do we get beneath the things that matter in order to build bridges across difference and division in order to build stronger relationships within our church communities?

Our worship patterns are not engaging people as they once did. Andrew Gamman will present ideas and resources to help develop worship styles that are more visual and interactive.
