Riverside at St Jude’s is the diocesan leadership programme designed to help refresh and refocus leadership in ministry. It combines applied teaching in various core areas of leadership along with reflective learning and the setting of personal goals in small groups.
“I commend this Riverside course to you as an investment and as time well spent equipping yourself the better to serve the Gospel and fulfil your most holy calling”.
The Rt Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington
The programme considers the challenges of church leadership across traditions within a framework that is shaped by Christ and his Kingdom, as well as drawing on best thinking from wider leadership expertise. Since the launch of Riverside in 2013, a wide range of clergy from across the Dioceses of London and Ely and have attended, including those relatively new-to-post and those with significant experience.
Riverside is for clergy of incumbent status (including chaplains) who will normally have been in their current ministry for at least two years.
