CMED Course – Appreciative Inquiry and Your Ministry

20th May 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

with Revd Kathryn Price

The church is a mystery to embrace rather than a problem to be solved

Appreciative Inquiry is based on the idea of discovering what works and gives life to an organisation and building the organisation on these life giving properties.

Through using Appreciative Inquiry in churches we discover”  What in God’s name is going on here” and then designing the church structure and programmes to enable more of these Godly things to be done and participated in.

The United Reformed Church has begun to use Appreciative Inquiry in different parts of its life – to review and evaluate, plan change and growth and to counter the tendency of churches to focus on the negative.

Kathryn has been using AI for a couple of years now – to help churches identify their own mission, as a research tool and in daily life.  This day will introduce the principles of Appreciative Inquiry and give examples of how it can be used to transform your ministry in ways both simple and profound.

Revd Kathryn Price has 18 years of URC ministry experience, serving local churches, an ecumenical group, national committees and is now Education & Learning Enabler for the South Western Synod.  She has also recently undergone

extensive training with Appreciating People, the URC’s partner in developing Appreciative Inquiry in the United Reformed Church.
