Clinical Pastoral Education in Porirua

For those wanting to improve and/or formalize their pastoral skills and qualifications, the Wellington group of the N. Z. Association of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) are offering a course that may interest people in the Wellington region.

CPE is now the “industry standard” for those seeking employment in pastoral chaplaincy positions within health-care, education, parishes and defence force.

It can be credited to other qualifications, including degrees.

The sessions will be set at fortnightly intervals to allow time for students to continue to build up practical pastoral experience in their place of ministry e.g., hospital, parish, school, rest home etc.

The course begins on 22, 23, 24 April and meets fortnightly on Thursday and Friday after those dates until the first week in August.
