First Primary Responsibility


First Post of Primary Responsibility Conference

This four-day conference is for clergy who have taken on a post of primary responsibility for the first time during the preceding year.

As well as some of the practicalities of legal responsibilities, there is the opportunity to explore managing the processes of change that a new clergyperson with primary responsibility is expected to undertake.

This course is hosted by the Revd Nick Ladd of Birmingham Diocese and the Revd Naomi Nixon of Coventry Diocese, and includes input from a range of speakers drawn from across the West Midlands.

Who is it for?

This course is for clergy who have taken on a post of primary responsibility in the past year, whether in a parish, chaplaincy, pioneer or diocesan context.
