Managing Conflict on our front line

Have you ever had to handle conflict at your work place or other front line?  How easy did you find it?  I suspect many will read the above with an uncomfortable feeling.  Conflict is a normal part of most of our working lives, and, handled well, it can be creative and energising.  However, handled badly, it can lead to stress, pain and do huge damage to both individuals and organisations. Most of us, if we are honest, don’t find managing or handling conflict easy.   If we are really honest,......

Gravetalk?

“I think I’d like that hymn at my funeral!” Grandma’s voice suddenly seemed to pierce the air, as the family sat playing Rummikub in front of Songs of Praise.  No-one seemed to know what to say in response to this sudden intrusion into their game, and “Have another cup of tea, Grandma …” was all that anyone, discomforted by her remark, could offer. What if Grandma really did want to talk about her funeral?  What if any of us wants to have that conversation that just doesn’t feel very......

However, Michael Carding, an experienced bell ringer, has recently joined one of the congregations at the church and is gathering together people who would like to learn the art of campanology.......

We have recently put our money where our bottoms are, and ‘twinned’ most of our toilets through an innovative scheme designed to improve sanitation in developing countries. Five of our toilets at Holy Trinity Church, the Trinity Centre and Cafe Connect are now linked to toilets in Africa and Asia, through Christian development agency tearfund. As part of our commitment to give away 10% of all the money we are given as a ‘tithe’, we have funded five toilets for communities in developing countries. Please pop in and check......
