Sponsored by the Blackburn Diocese, this 10 day foundation level, non-denominational course is to be held from January to June 2021 and seeks to:

  • nurture deeper listening to and reflection on the movement of the Holy Spirit in ourselves and others in order to support the growth of discipleship
  • explore the wisdom and insights of a range of Christian traditions of spiritual accompaniment
  • grow a new generation of faith accompaniers with potential to serve the Church in a world living with and emerging from the challenges of Covid-19

This will run between 10am and 3.30pm at the Blackburn Cathedral Conference Suite on the following Mondays:

January 18
February 1 and 15
March 8 and 22
April 12 and 26
May 10 and 24
June 7

The course assumes a desire to deepen one's own journey with God and participants are expected to have (or be actively seeking) a spiritual director for themselves before the course commences. 

This is a non-accredited course and completion does not in itself qualify participants to practise as spiritual directors but may confirm a call to this ministry. On completion participants will receive a certificate of attendance and participation.

The closing date for applications is November 31, 2020.
