Nearly all our volunteers and a few extra people enjoyed our Op Shop Workshop today. Our presenters were Debra Saffrey-Collins
General Manager for Chaplaincy and Diocesan Partnerships, Brotherhood of St Laurence and Archdeacon Jan Crombie coordinator of ‘Parish Partnerships’ between the Melbourne Diocese, Anglicare and the Brotherhood of St Lawrence.
They have been developing two particular programs – The Pastoral Listening Project and the Good Neighbour Project. They used the principles of both with our team, to address community context and community relationships as well as looking at ways to develop effective listening tools, and developing an understanding of the importance of hospitality and care of customers.
It was a very positive and encouraging day, as well as challenging us to continue to develop. Well done.
