Talking about the 'E' word

On Thursday 13th September from 10am to 3pm, Leeds Diocese are running a special training day at St George's Church, Leeds called 'Talking about the 'E' Word'. By 'E' word we actually mean evangelism word.   For so many in the church today, evangelism can be a scary concept and difficult to apply to our everyday lives. Therefore, this day aims to inspire and equip clergy, lay leaders, youth workers and others involved in evangelism within the church. It will be lead by the Revd Canon Robin Gamble (Bishop's Adviser for Church Growth),  Revd Canon Sophie Jelley (Diocese of Durham) and Revd Matt Woodcock (Diocese of York). Five key evangelistic skills or areas will be covered throughout the day, including: communicating with lots of people, one to one evangelism, giving a good evangelistic talk, running an enquirers course and healing and evangelism working together.     If you wish to book a place or for more information please contact Robin at
