As part of the mandatory 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 all of the case studies provided in the workbook available for download, below. Each participant is then to prepare a one -page reflection sheet on one of these case studies of his/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.
- There will be ‘paired discussions’ and group discussions concerning the implications of each case study.
- Please bring a copy of the UCA Code of Ethics and Ministry Practice with you as this is the basis from which informed discussions will develop.
