Healing the Wounds of Trauma

Daytime Conference April 7th – 11th 2008 10am to 6pm at Cornerstone Christian Centre, 21A The Mall, Bromley BR1 1TR LONDON

Led by Wycliffe members: Scripture Use specialist Margaret Hill, and Richard Bagge, Head of Africa Area Counselling.

In many parts of the world today, ethnic conflict and civil disturbances, crime and natural disasters have left people traumatised. Many of those affected are Christians, and the Church has a clear responsibility and role to care for them.

Beyond the Church doors, Christians are to be light and salt in the world, particularly important in times of conflict and suffering.

"Healing the wounds of Trauma" is a practical and Biblical training course for Church leaders and those with pastoral responsibility. The course was first used in North West DR Congo in May 2001 and has since been held in many war torn or post conflict regions of Africa.

It is essential for those who are called upon to help members in their congregations who have experienced major trauma such as through war, criminal activity or natural disaster.

For the first time this training, with seminars and interactive workshops, has been available in the UK and, on this occasion, priority free places will be given to those Church leaders with a significant congregation who have fled conflict.

If God loves us, why do we suffer?

Can the wounds of our hearts be healed?

What happens when someone is grieving?

How can we support children who have experienced conflict?

How can we help those who have been raped?

How can a Church minister in the midst of AIDS?

How can we forgive others?

What about caring for the caregiver!
