Riverside at St Jude’s is the diocesan leadership programme designed to help refresh and refocus leadership in ministry. Since the launch of Riverside in 2013, a wide range of clergy from across the Diocese have attended, including those in parish ministry, in chaplaincy roles and sector ministries and a number of SSM clergy. We have also enjoyed having a number of clergy from Ely Diocese joining us in recent years, and look forward to this dimension continuing.

“As I look to the exciting challenges that the coming years will surely bring, 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 & Rt Hon Richard Chartres, former Bishop of London

Riverside at St Jude’s combines applied teaching in various core areas of leadership along with reflective learning and the setting of personal goals in small groups. We are delighted to have a varied and experienced team from across the Diocese, to teach and to facilitate small groups. The programme considers the challenges of church leadership within a framework that is shaped by Christ and his Kingdom, as well as drawing on best thinking from wider leadership expertise.
