Online Training

The Synod Strategy Team has asked for volunteers from parishes, partnerships, charities, primary and secondary schools to act as contacts for the Brentwood Synodal Pathway. We are keen to encourage people who will help us to hear the voices of people throughout Essex and East London to begin this journey with us.

All volunteers are invited to an Online Introduction Training Session to be introduced to Synod Pathway for the Diocese of Brentwood. This session will be held four times, to enable as many people as possible to attend.

Whilst the content will be the same at each session, the for schools will also look at the engagement of students, staff and parents, so would be ideal for schools’ contact persons, staff and governors.

“It is important to reflect on the unique situation in which we find ourselves as we emerge from a worldwide pandemic.

This journey of graceful listening will help us to dream of the Church God is calling us to become.”

Co-leaders, Fr Andrew Headon and Teresa Carvalho
