The Bishop’s Training Event is a free annual event for all Anglicans from around Tasmania to gather together to learn and grow and be encouraged.

The 2022 Bishop's Training Event will have live events in Hobart on Saturday 17 September and in Launceston on Saturday 24 September.

The morning sessions will feature talks from Wei-Han Kwan, the Director of the Victorian branch of the Church Missionary Society, and Bishop Richard. In the afternoon, you are invited to choose two workshops to attend.

The Bishop's Training Event is a free event, but you are required to register to attend. All are welcome. If you would like to make a contribution towards the running costs of the event, and to enable us to continue delivering high quality training events, you can do that here.

About the Bishop's Training Event

The Bishop's Training Event provides both theological and practical teaching. The first half of the day is grounded in God’s word. The second half focuses on skills development with practical workshops, for example, in evangelism and discipleship, ministry to all ages, prayer, mission, leadership, and public worship.

At the heart of our Vision to be a church for Tasmania, making disciples of Jesus, is developing a network of flourishing parish centres across our Diocese working together with our other Anglican ministries, schools and agencies. It is hoped that people leave the training event encouraged, with greater knowledge of God, and some practical skills and ideas to grow a flourishing parish and to serve God in the community and with their whole life.
