Equipping God’s people

I don’t think I have spoken with anyone who is finding lockdown easy, so how can we help friends, family, a work colleague who are finding this a particularly challenging time?

To help equip and support us as a congregation come alongside friends, family, a work colleague in a helpful way we will be running two training sessions. These sessions will not turn us all into well-being and mental health experts but will help us grow in confidence while also recognising our limits.

Leading the training sessions for us is Andrew Bennett. For the last 9 years, he has worked as a Health care Chaplain in Ninewells hospital in Dundee. Prior to this Andrew was an Associate Minister at St Mungo’s Church in Balerno, Edinburgh. He is a qualified Pastoral Supervisor registered with APSE as a Senior Accredited Pastoral Supervisor, with a Diploma in Pastoral Supervision. He is also a qualified Values Based Reflective Practice facilitator and a Scottish Mental Health First Aid trainer for Young people.
