Trauma-informed Ministry in a time of COVID, delivered by the Tragedy and Congregations Team:
The Revd Dr Carla Grosch-Miller
The Revd Hilary Ison
Professor Christopher Southgate.
Since 2017 the team has delivered 20 training days in various settings for Anglican and URC groups. We have provided a range of resources as the COVID crisis has unfolded.We now offer half-day Zoom meetings with groups of 12 ministers. These will provide:
- opportunities to articulate experience of the COVID crisis
- a chance to make connections between these reactions and trauma theory
- explorations of the dynamics of communities after a tragedy
- biblical resources for addressing our current situation.
To book one or more meetings please contact Chris Southgate at email@example.com
We normally ask a contribution of 100 per meeting towards staff costs, the rest of which are being met through a generous grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation. To see more of the groups work, look at the project book Tragedies and Christian Congregations: a practical theology of trauma (Routledge, 2019). This is also available from Professor Southgate (30 inc p&p).
Or look at our website tragedyandcongregations.org.uk for recent blogs and meditations.
This project has received funding from the Templeton World Charities Foundation Inc., and is now in receipt of a grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation (in association with Sarum College).
