We are delighted to announce that Kirsten Guthrie has been appointed Assistant Director of Women’s Ministry and will be joining the team, three days a week, from 1st September 2024.
She will be working alongside Carrie Sandom, the current Director of Women’s Ministry, and will be involved in teaching and tutoring women students at Cornhill, as well as helping to host and run the annual Women in Ministry conference.
Kirsten has been the Women’s Worker at Trinity Church, Islington, for over 10 years and has a wealth of experience of church-based ministry. She has also been a long-term member of the ever-increasing team of volunteers who lead teaching practice classes for F1, F2 and Core students. She will remain at Trinity, in a part-time capacity, ensuring that her church-based ministry experience continues to grow, albeit in a slightly different capacity.
Please pray for Kirsten as she prepares for this exciting new role and for the church family at Trinity as they make decisions on how to cover her absence.
We can’t wait for her to join us.
Men in Ministry 2024: Swanwick
Monday 15th April 2024 –
Thursday 18th April 2024
This conference is for for men engaged in any form of Bible teaching ministry, whether full-time, part-time or spare time, at whatever age, and whatever level of experience in church leadership.
The conference will be hosted by Nigel Styles with speakers John Stevens (Hebrews) and Stephen Boon (Ephesians).
Each conference includes
● six Bible talks (three from each speaker, on the two Bible books mentioned above);
● workshops in groups of 6 people (plus an experienced group leader) who meet four times to work together to understand a Bible book, and develop sermon outlines to provide the basis for a future preaching series;
● an evening to pray in depth for one another, in those same groups;
● two evenings with a visiting speaker to stimulate thought about ministry.
This combination of plenary teaching and small group workshop, in comfortable surroundings, with relaxed mealtimes and two free afternoons, provides every opportunity to relax and recharge batteries, spiritually and physically.
Conference numbers are kept deliberately small.
This Conference will be held at The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire. All rooms ensuite and single occupancy.
Early Bird Rate: £360
Price increase effective 26th February 2024: £395
Bookings close: 27th March 2024(Subject to availability)
The Conference will start at 4pm on Monday and finish at lunchtime on the Thursday.
