'Do I need counselling if I have Faith?'

Sevenoaks Counselling Annual Open Meeting

Speaker : Revd Jane Edwards

‘If you’re a Christian and you go and see a counsellor, doesn’t that mean you don’t trust God and the power of prayer?’ ‘Will a counsellor knock my faith?’ ‘What’s the difference between seeing a counsellor and seeing my minister or priest?’

Jane Edwards will tackle these and other questions about counselling, prayer ministry and spiritual accompaniment/direction.
Jane is Vicar of All Saints Belvedere and was previously Curate of St Mary’s Riverhead.  Prior to training for ministry in the Anglican Church, she worked as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer and remains a BACP Accredited Practitioner.  She has worshipped in Free Churches and been a member of a Prayer Ministry Team.

Understanding Domestic Abuse

This seminar seeks to help victims and those in pastoral roles to further understand what to do to identify and help with this problem.

Run by the Community Domestic Abuse Programme (CDAP) - part of Sevenoaks District Council - the seminar includes a male and female survivor,  and a man who has been through the perpetrator programme explaining what CDAP has done for him.

Covering coercive controlling behaviour as well as physical, sexual, emotional and physiological abuse, it looks at what we can do to support those affected.

Terry Waite to visit Otford

Terry Waite to visit Otford

St Bartholomew’s Church, Otford

To mark the completion of their reordering and redecoration project, St Bartholomew’s Church, Otford will be welcoming Terry Waite for a special evening on Saturday 19th May at 6.30pm, when Terry will be in conversation with former BBC broadcaster, Nick Page.  This will be followed by a reception with canapés, and Terry’s books will be available to be bought - and signed.

Terry Waite, as the international envoy for the Archbishop of Canterbury during the 1980s, successfully negotiated the release of British hostages, first from Iran and then from Libya. Then, when trying to do the same in Lebanon, he was himself taken captive and held for nearly five years - most of that time in solitary confinement.

Tickets for this evening cost £20 and are available now from the church office on st.bartholomews@otford.net  and from Joan Beacom (01959) 524304.
This event is likely to be a sell out, so please obtain a ticket in advance to avoid disappointment. Thank you!
