"Language is accessible and easily understood. Content is meaningful and helpful. I also appreciate that this workshop was grounded spiritually." Janet, a minister


"The case study was very helpful to talk through, and extremely appropriate and relevant in a congregational context. I would particularly recommend this workshop to other church sessions/ governing bodies. This was very useful training for us in our position." Alex, community leader
