purpose and outcomes

Before embarking on a workshop, be clear about its purpose and the expected outcomes.


The overall purpose of a workshop is:

  • To enable participants to get in touch with their feelings about death and dying
  • To enable participants to explore and articulate the meanings they bring to this reality
  • To listen to participants’ experiences and their personal and theological understandings
  • To generate and share stories, images and ‘bottom up’ theologies from experience in order to inform and feed the life of that particular Christian community



For workshop leaders, the outcomes of a workshop can include:

  • Deeper insight and understanding of where people are in their lives to inform ministerial practice
  • Deeper understanding of their own theologies
  • Enrichment of their personal, spiritual and professional lives through being open to receive wisdom and insight from others
