Today, Tim & Rach have been with over 100 others at the Chaplaincy in Education conference in Peterborough. It's been a really encouraging day, hearing from school chaplains, as well as conversations exploring all sorts of chaplaincy-related topics including starting a chaplaincy, managing your time/resources wisely, the theology of chaplaincy and even how to lead a team like Harry Redknapp!
The afternoon consisted of three focus group seminars looking at mentoring, multi faith chaplaincy and resources for spiritual development. This third seminar was delivered by Tim and Rach with two versions catering for those working in primary and secondary schools. The seminars looked at three different approaches which spiritual development can take, 4 ways to create your own resources and 8 characteristics of a good spiritual development resource. Each of the characteristics were illustrated with an example of an existing spiritual development resource, including Prayer Spaces In Schools.
If you were at the day and would like to see the presentations and notes again, you can download them here, using the links on the right. There's also a list of links to sites offering resources for spiritual development and some recommended books for reading around the topic which you can find on Tim's website.
