NAM Reflection Day @ Spurgeon's College
May 28 all-day

This day will be led by Nigel Copsey.

Aim

To reflect on issues which ministers face in their churches. A particular focus will be upon the interface between people’s faith journey and their psychological needs and development.

Content 

Attendees will be invited to prepare a reflection in advance of the reflection day encouraging them to reflect on the most difficult struggles they have had in their early days in ministry.

There will be 3 main sessions:

  1. Focus on issues: What are the challenges out there today?
  2. Focus on the minister: What are the challenges for you?
  3. Focus on strategies for the future.

We consider this to be a very important element of our provision for NAMs.

As well as the structured programme of sessions, there will be plenty of opportunity to discuss your options and to look around the campus.

Not sure which course is right for you? Our tutors will be on hand to help. Alternatively, take the chance to have a one-on-one conversation about finance, how to apply or visas for international students.

We are holding an opening on 11th June 2019. Please register to join us. A non-refundable registration fee of £5.00 is charged to attend open days.
