CMED Course – Dealing with conflicts in the church

15th June 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

with Revd Canon Keith Lamdin

People say that the church is conflict averse and clergy report that conflicts in church life cause them sleepless stress.

This day will explore:

  • the kinds of conflicts that emerge in church life,
  • why they take up so much energy; and
  • strategies for using conflicts to bring about change and creativity.

The Revd Canon Keith Lamdin was for 25 years the director of the Board for Stewardship, Training, Evangelism and Ministry in the diocese of Oxford, where he managed a team of 14 trainers and consultants. He led the development of a competency-based modular programme, validated by Oxford Brookes University, at undergraduate and post graduate levels. He taught on the Master’s leadership modules.

 Keith then became Principal of Sarum College in Salisbury where he not only exercised a leadership role himself but also specialised in the professional development of clergy, working as a consultant to senior clergy as well as to senior managers in the field of health care, education and the voluntary sector. He has launched the MA programme in Christian approaches to Leadership and has been pioneering a programme for women leaders in the church. Keith has recently retired from his post of principal at Sarum and is now spending time helping clergy think about their leadership.

 Keith co-authored a book on supervision skills for those who work with the newly ordained, and in 2012 SPCK published his latest book Finding Your Leadership Style.

Note: This event is a joint CMED/IME Phase 2 (curates) session.
