Going Inside: Quaker prison chaplains’ training

21st May 2021 - 10th June 2021


This course is open to all Quaker Prison Chaplains, both recently-nominated and those with experience. It will cover practical issues about working in the prison environment, and how to build trust with staff and inmates within clear boundaries. It will also encourage you to reflect on the Quaker basis of your ministry within a multi-faith team and to deepen your understanding of the role. The course will be led by two experienced serving chaplains and will combine live sessions with individual study and reflection to inform your practice.

There will be live sessions on Tuesday 1st June 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm; Saturday 5th June 10:00 am – 12:30 am and Thursday 10th June 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm. Sessions will not be recorded and you need to join all sessions to get full benefit from the course. There will be about 2 hours of individual tasks and reflection in preparation before each live session. There will be an optional extra live session in the week commencing 28th June – the exact time and date will be agreed with those who sign up for the course.
