Welfare & Safeguarding God's People
2 sessions: Fr Timothy Curtis & Tina Lowe
This workshop - intended for Welfare Officers - will explore and discuss (in a safe place) the following: our Deanery policies; what experience we have as a team of Welfare Officers; and identify steps forward that help each of us to implement the policies.
Bible Study Group
2 sessions: Mary Hodson
Angels. An examination of the work of the holy angels in scripture, and their role in the history of salvation.
Pigrimage: Saints & Sacred Spaces
2 sessions: Vivian Wright
This workshop has three underlying questions: what is - and what isn't - pilgrimage? why do it? and how does it make a difference to our lives? Two pilgrims will share their experiences (Mount Sinai and Walsingham) but we also want to hear from other pilgrims: how has pilgrimage shaped your spiritual journey?
How to Pray
1 session (repeated), Saturday and Sunday: Fr Julian Lowe
This is a workshop consisting of one session only - repeated the following afternoon. It will be a low-tech exploration of what we can do to develop our prayer life and come closer to God: how we can pray, where we can pray and what we can pray. What is available to us that we might nourish and develop the soul?
Singing Prayer: for complete beginners!
1 session, Saturday: Claire-Marie Curtis
This workshop is intended for those who don't currently sing in a choir, but who would like to explore (with other like-minded beginners!) what are the aims and objectives of singing - in the services of the Orthodox Church - with particular reference to under-resourced small parishes/communities.
Parents' Forum: Children & Church
1 session, Sunday: Elie Hériard & Viktor Mastoridis
An informal forum for discussion and sharing ideas about being a spiritually healthy parent and raising Orthodox children in everyday life. Topics: personal and family prayer, fasting, going to church; reading the Bible or lives of saints etc.
Children and Young Adult Programmes
We provide two programmes at this event: a Children's Programme for ages 4-10 and a Young Adults Programme, for 11-17. This year the help of the parents with the Children's Programme will be crucial, as many of the regular volunteers are not able to come.
Can I be Orthodox and Cool? (11 to 17 years )
by Ginka Mastoridis & Fr Augustine. Please write below the NAMES and AGES of the registered children who are going to participate in this programme.
Children's Programme (4-10 years)
by Viktor Mastoridis, Helpers & Parents. This year, children are invited to participate on the condition that one parent is expected to contribute 2-3 hours to the programme. A rota of parents will be circulated before the start of the Conference, but the shifts can be swapped on site, with the agreement of Viktor and the Helpers. Please write below the NAMES and AGES of the registered children who are going to participate in this programme, as well as the NAME OF ONE PARENT who is going to contribute 2-3 hours.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
