faith leaders' training initiative equipping the UK's faith leaders for the challenges of contemporary ministry

Great leadership can have a transformative effect upon an organisation. Our faith communities are doing amazing work up and down the country and one of the reasons for this is the exceptional dedication, vision and passion of their leaders.

Contemporary society throws many practical challenges at faith leaders which we don't always feel able to confront effectively. FLTI has been created to help us as faith leaders address the great social challenges which face society today. Together we will improve our capacity to identify and address issues like domestic and sexual abuse, gang and knife crime and mental health concerns, as well learning about equalities legislation, UK marriage law, effective charity governance and safeguarding. This is free training to help us with the practicalities of contemporary ministry.

faith-sensitive training

Together we want to build develop well-qualified, informed and confident faith leaders who will able to better support their communities in confronting contemporary social challenges and signpost them to the relevant professional services.

This training will be delivered to you free of charge and is available online as well as in face-to-face delivery in four locations: Birmingham, London and Manchester in Spring 2019, coming to Leeds in Autumn 2019.

Open to leaders of all faiths and all ages

The programme curriculum was designed and shaped in direct collaboration between the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, the Edward Cadbury Centre for the Public Understanding of Religion, partners across Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Jewish and Hindu religious communities and cross-governmental support to ensure the training offer meets the needs of religious ministers themselves.

online or in person

The in-person training consists of four modules which will take a day each to complete and will be delivered in prestigious and comfortable conferencing venues, with all hospitality provided and some special guests dropping in from time to time. The online course comprises the same four modules but allows you to work through the material in your own time.
