The “Exploring best practices for pastoral governance at the service of Christ’s mission” webinar is designed for parish, diocesan and deanery pastoral councils and parish leadership teams and aims to explore best practices of pastoral governance within faith communities.
It follows on from the first national webinar on the theme “Knowing our community?” and attended by 180 people from across Australia and New Zealand in August.
The October 20 webinar will highlight models of Church leadership and draw upon the recommendations from the Australian governance review, The Light from the Southern Cross.
Mission Planners Network chair Stephen Reid said: “These webinars offer the opportunity to come together to hear some of the best practices when it comes to leadership in our faith communities. The importance of good leadership and pastoral planning for Christ’s Mission is vital as we continue to respond to new ways to be community in a 21st century Church.”
