The Heart of Communication with Rob Parsons

Wednesday 9 October

The ability to connect with an audience is an essential element of public speaking. Yet it is possible for an effective presentation to be delivered without affecting those who hear it, but there are ways that even the most proficient speakers can enhance their communication skills.

This autumn, for the first time, Rob Parsons is going on tour to share insights from over fifty years of experience. He will unpack methods that will help any public speaker to better grasp not only how to speak to the head, but to the heart.

You’ll come away with …

-A better understanding of how to prepare well

-Creative ways to utilise the power of the story

-Ways to avoid the most common distractions

-Insight into knowing why we ‘lose’ an audience

-A fresh passion for transformative communication

Is it for you?

This event is for anyone who communicates in church but many of the principles are transferable for people who speak in any context.

The speaker.


Rob Parsons, OBE, is the founder and CEO of Care for the Family. He is a bestselling author of over 20 books including the The Heart of Success and The Sixty Minute Father

The Sacred Art of Joking with James Cary

Friday 29 November

The devil may have all the best tunes, but does he have all the best jokes?
Join award-winning BBC comedy writer and stand-up theologian James Cary on Friday 29 November as he brings his one-man show to Stoke Gifford. Based on his book, The Sacred Art of Joking, it’s about how jokes can go horribly wrong, especially in the realm of religion. James will explain why Christians should be able to take a joke and how the Bible is way funnier than it first appears. Seriously!
Was Jesus funny? Why does religion have to be so serious? Maybe it doesn’t.
James Cary has contributed to BBC shows like Miranda, Another Case of Milton Jones and Newsnight. 

Tickets on sale now.  Early bird rate of only £5 if you buy before 30 September
