Freedom to Serve is a programme of seminars aimed at supporting Christian leaders in church and mission ministry situations.
Does it seem that you are held back because of issues such as:
- The stress you experience saps your energy;
- There are certain individuals who are hard to work with;
- Its hard to get your team to pull together or;
- You have difficulty in inspiring folk to head where they need to go?
The Freedom to Serve series will help you with these issues and more. The topics have been specifically selected by Claybury International to address some of the most common issues faced in ministry and mission, church and organisation. They are topics not normally taught in Bible College or seminary.
The series is hosted at Kingsfield, Claybury International’s Head Quarters in Baldock, Hertfordshire. It is only around 35 minutes by train from London Kings Cross and Cambridge and it’s very easy to reach by car with good access from the A1M, M1, M11 and M25. Northampton, Milton-Keynes, Peterborough, Newmarket, Chelmsford, Slough, High Wycombe and Oxford are within about a 45 mile radius. We are also close to London Luton Airport and within easy distance from London Stansted and Heathrow airports too.
Baldock is only 35 minutes from London Kings Cross and Cambridge.
Delegate accommodation is also available on site.
Drawing on years of experience working along side Christian leaders around the world in many situations and running well established programmes such as the Centre for Continuing Development in Ministry (in partnership with Spurgeon’s College), Claybury International have chosen a number of key topics for the series.
- Mastering Stress
- Emotional Intelligence
- Inspiring Vision and Creative Outcomes
