In the first term there is an ‘Induction Session’ + ‘Session One’ for new groups of teams. ‘Session Two’ happens in the second term. ‘Session Three’ happens in the third term. When exactly these terms fall (on the Calendar) depends on when each team starts to engage in the Cultivate process.


Each Session will start with a meal together at 6pm, and finish by 9.30pm, so that people are both able to come after a day in work, and still get home at a sensible time afterwards. They (usually!) take place on the second Monday evening of the month.


These Sessions will usually be held at the new St. Aidan’s Centre in St. James’ House, in the meeting rooms on the first floor.
