Newbigin Associates

Newbigin Associates

(Community Worker Formation Course based in Winson Green)

This twelve month leadership and community formation ‘seed bed’ experience is for 12 participants based in Winson Green and Handsworth. The focus is on joining community life, growing and developing spiritually, personally and in skills for neighbourhood renewal. While some participants are already local to the neighbourhood and will remain, others will use this as a vocation discernment time and take up opportunities to be ‘re-planted’ in another neighbourhood once the year is over. The Newbigin Associates program includes living in Winson Green, a community work placement, a  weekly action- reflection group, retreats, monthly seminars and mentoring.  Newbigin Associate could also do some part time formal study with one of our partner Colleges. We hope to commission the first Newbigin Associates in Winson Green in October 2016.

> Cost:  approximately £ 250 per month for those living in Newbigin House
