As part of the requirements of the NSW & ACT Synod for ministers to have ongoing training; participation in two half-day refreshers for Ethical Ministry are expected each year.

Participants are required to have read and considered the case studies relevant to the topic (as provided in the course workbook), and each participant is expected to prepare a one page reflection sheet on one of these case studies of his, or her choosing.  When the group meets, participants are invited to share their reflections and discuss issues that arise.

Facilitators are to select 2-3 case studies for discussion during the session:
