FaithThinking offers a regular opportunity for reflection on issues relating to theology and pastoral practice.

Sessions are led by invited guests who are asked to speak on areas in which they specialise, usually beginning with a short paper or presentation followed by time for discussion.

Our aim is to provide a safe space where we can talk honestly about the questions and challenges of ministry, while also being stretched and informed in our thinking.

FaithThinking is convened by three of our serving ministers: The Revds. Claire Nicholls (New Addington), Trevor Neill (Selsdon), and Claude Halm (IPC and Aldersbrook).

The dates and speakers for FaithThinking during 2024 are as follows:

2024 Dates

Wednesday 6th March - 10:30am - 12:30pm - at the LB Offices in Dock Street with Rev. Richard Dormandy

"Becoming and Being Resilient Ministers"

An opportunity to reflect on an issue which impacts all of us. How do we sustain ourselves when faced with the challenges which ministry regularly throws at us: the demands of busy programmes, the pressure and disappointment which occurs when growth doesn’t happen as quickly as we’d hoped, the pressure of leading a community while living within it and sometimes finding ourselves wounded by the hurtful actions of our brothers and sisters.

Since 2009 Richard Dormandy has been Vicar of Holy Trinity Church in Tulse Hill in South London. Richard is also the author of The Madness of St Paul, an exploration of how the Apostle ‘rediscovered the love of God’ at a time of crisis, when writing 2 Corinthians.

Future dates: 10th July, 9th October
