The Learning Network
The Learning Network serving the Manchester and Stockport District in the North West and Mann Region
We are a regionally located team working across the North West Region, which includes the Manchester and Stockport District. There are 8 members of employed staff who are available to work with districts, circuits, churches, lay employees, office holders, ordained colleagues and volunteers. As members of the Connexional team, we are a ‘paid for’ resource so there is no charge for our time. Jasmine Devadason is your aligned officer and is the ‘face’ of the Learning Network in the district. However, the whole team is accessible and available to bring their gifts and graces to help equip the district to be a place of lifelong learning and to fulfil its calling.
We serve in three main ways:
- By offering formal learning opportunities and training courses;
- By gathering people with a common mission or calling to grow together as peers;
- Development work alongside circuits, churches, groups e.g. circuit vision development, leadership or team development, circuit reviews.
If there is a piece of work that is not currently offered, we can look at offering something new or locating another provider, so please do ask.
Meet the team:
Each team member leads on different areas but the first port of call will be your District Aligned Officer or the Coordinator.
