Developing Direction

Developing Direction is the Centre’s programme of events and groups designed to foster the ongoing development and support of spiritual directors. We offer one-off days, evenings, short courses and supervision groups. To help support this work, Spiritual Directors can also become members of our Community of Spiritual Directors and thereby have a visible presence in our online Directory.

Formation and Ongoing Development

The Centre offers a series of one-off days, evening and short courses; covering a broad spectrum of topics, themes and practice issues related to the ministry of spiritual direction. They are led by experienced practitioners from all over the country and, in keeping with the nature of formation, will usually consist of a mix of input, personal reflection, discussion and prayer.

For up-to-date information and to enroll, see our Courses and Events page.

The Community of Spiritual Directors

The Centre has also created a Community of Spiritual Directors consisting of those who offer the ministry of spiritual direction and who have also agreed to observe our Code of Practice and Safeguarding Guidelines. You can find those who are members of the Community on our online Directory of Spiritual Directors.

The Directory is updated on a quarterly basis. If you would like to apply to be part of the Community, please go to the Community page page to download the application form, Code of Practice and Safeguarding Guidelines

Annual Network Day

Open to all spiritual directors across greater London and beyond, the network day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate spiritual direction and to enjoy meeting up with colleagues and friends who share this work. There are typically one or two talks, time for formal and informal discussion and a liturgy within which we are invited to re-dedicate our ministry and to pray for one another. This usually happens on the 3rd Saturday of November and we will advertise the day in the Courses and Events section of the website.
