tomorrow i'll be attending a consulation day with sophianetwork, see below for information

How can organisations and churches be places where both men and women thrive in ministry? Our consultation last year highlighted concerns about a lack of opportunities and support for women in Christian ministry. Is that a true reflection of what’s happening in the church?

The Equality and Human Rights Commission have highlighted five areas of persistent inequality in society that affect both men and women: the income gap; supporting modern families; public services; tackling violence and sharing power. Do these inequalities also exist in the church and in Christian organisations?

Come and share your experience, learn from others and help us find a way forward. To include input from Andrew McCracken and Mandy Marshall from Tearfund on their recent gender audit, and from Sally Nash on skills for collaborative ministry from her book.

When: Wednesday 1 July, 2009
Where: CPAS, Athena Drive, Tachbrook Park, Warwick, Warwickshire CV34 6NG
Time: 11am to 4pm
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

We still have a few places so RSVP to Sharon Prior if you plan to come.
