Circles of Connection - Training Course

A Half-Day Training Course: ‘Circles of Connection’. Developing High-Quality Small-Group Activities: An Introduction to Engagement Group Facilitation


Saturday 15th September - 11am for an 11.30am start until 3pm

Essex Church, 112 Palace Gardens Terrace, London W8 4RT


The term ‘Engagement Groups’ is given to a particular style of Unitarian small-group activity which has the intention to enrich the spiritual life of participants, cultivate right relationship, create community, and deepen their connection to each other and to their congregation. In this taster session, led by Jane Blackall and Sheena Gabriel, we will explore the thinking behind Engagement Groups, consider the diverse forms they can take, introduce some basic principles of facilitation, and give pointers to further training opportunities and resources, in the hope that participants will be inspired to set up new Engagement Groups in their own congregations.

You’ll need to book in advance by 31st August (though the training is free of charge) so the organisers know how many people to prepare for, but you are also welcome to arrive at 3.00pm to attend a special circle-style worship service, following the workshop, connected to the day’s overall theme. This will be followed by refreshments and time to socialise with everyone. Finish time will be around 4.30pm.  To book a place on the workshop or find out more, please contact Jane Blackall ASAP on or phone and leave a message on 020 7221 6514.
