Walking the talk - practical obedience to Christ as a junior doctor

25-27 October 2019Hothorpe Hall, Leicestershire

What does it mean in practice to follow Christ amidst the stress, pressures, and opportunities of life and the emotional, moral and spiritual challenges of working in the NHS as a health professional? How can we develop daily practices, habits and disciplines which will support us in our working schedules? How can we build resilience and character which is rooted in the reality of a growing relationship with Christ and the support of our Christian brothers and sisters? How can we learn to overcome unhealthy perfectionist tendencies and strive for excellence and leadership with healthy acceptance of who we really are in Christ? How do we discover the joy of fulfilling the unique vocation that God has given us?

Join us at this weekend conference to explore practical answers to these questions together, and for fellowship, friendship, refreshment and restoration in the Lord.
