Clergy Time Out Days 2020

Time Out Day Resources


We hope these ideas and resources will be helpful for reflection and self-care.

Some thoughts to help you use the time well

  • Turn off your phone, unplug the doorbell – minimise technological interruption!
  • Try to explain to anyone else in your house that you’re not available during this time
  • If you’re doing this in your study, try not to sit at your desk
  • Maybe light a candle to acknowledge ‘different’ time
  • Try to gather anything you might need (ie ingredients, bits and pieces) in advance to avoid using the space in session
  • This is YOUR time, to give you space and time with God.

The Resources and Ideas sheet is a good place to start

Chaplains are available throughout the session and their details are available in the email sent by Nicky Fenton.
