ABOUT 50 APSE members from a range of disciplines are linked with the Midlands Group, about half of whom are active in the regional meetings.
Before the pandemic we were meeting once a term in Central Birmingham. Since then it’s been all online, but we hope to move to a hybrid model of probably meeting once a year in person and 2-3 times online.
Meetings in 2021 took place via Zoom in January, March, September and December, covering the topics of Shame in the Church, Reflecting Theologically in Pastoral Supervision, Being Virtually Creative, and Mediation, with two external trainers and two APSE members taking the lead.
As well as input on a specific topic, we also spend some time sharing news and catching up with each other. We are looking for new things to include in future meetings, but the core will continue to be creating a safe and stimulating place to learn with and from one another and to support each other in our practice of pastoral supervision.
Dates for 2022;
Wednesday 14th September and Thursday 24th November.
We propose to hold the winter one via Zoom with similar times to last year, 10am-12.30pm, but hope to have the autumn one in person in Birmingham, probably 10.30am-3.30pm.
