TELT Report - 19th Jun 2020

Theological Education and Leadership Training Report and Resources


The TELT report is available to read, and can be downloaded by clicking here


The TELT work group has produced additional material to assist engagement with their report.

These additional resources can be found here.



Each Presbytery is invited to constructively frame its response in three ways

  • Comments about the five streams identified in the executive summary and the direction outlined
  • Note any areas where the report is missing key information or omitted important material
  • Detailed comments about the report

Southern Presbytery has arranged a few video conferences in the week of July 20th  - 25th and invite anyone in the South who wishes to participate to join these discussions. A member of the Theological Education and Lay Training task group will also be invited to join each group. Each group will be asked to make time to frame its collective response bearing in mind the three ways of responding outlined above. The Presbytery Council will consider these at its meeting on August 12th and finalise the Presbytery’s response to the report and recommendations.

We will set up the dialogue groups using the Presbytery Zoom account and forward the links to you. Participation is not limited to Presbytery members. Presbytery is aware of at least one group which is discussing their suggestions for how we respond to the proposal. It would be helpful if these could be sent to Presbytery by July 15th so we can distribute these before the dialogue groups meet.


In the meantime, please feel free to copy and discuss the proposals with those in your church or ministry setting.
