Stirring the Gift


Stirring the Gift

“Will you then, in the strength of the Holy Spirit, continually stir up the gift of God that is in you, to grow in holiness and grace?”

(from the Ordinal of the Church of England)

Stirring the Gift has been a rolling programme of short conferences designed to give clergy the opportunity to invest and grow in their creativity. Each conference has had a main speaker, and a focus on a particular form of artistic expression.

For the time being this strand of training is on hold, due to changes of personnel. We very much hope to be able to give more attention to this important area in the future.

The conferences have combined opportunities to hear from a speaker, to share our creativity with one another and to attend to creative expression of our own.

Who is it for?

All clergy.


The refreshment, renewal & growth of individual creativity.

Upcoming dates:



The Billesley Manor Hotel, Alcester Road, Alcester, B49 6NF
