Contact: Pauline Gilbertson, Landings UK Coordinator, c/o Ealing Abbey Parish Office, 2 Marchwood Crescent, London W5 2DZ. Email: [email protected] Phone: 07717 224 072 The Landings UK training will be delivered by Fr James Leachman OSB, Fr Daniel McCarthy OSB and Pauline Gilbertson. COSTS: The training is designed for parish groups who are committed to using the Landings programme. By the end of the training groups will be fully prepared to begin using Landings in their parish.The cost of the day includes all the resources that are required to run the programme. There is one cost of £150 per parish. Usually parishes send groups of 4 or 5 people, but if 10 people from a parish attend, the cost is still the same. It is beneficial and more cost effective to train all members of a parish team together. If individuals wish to attend the workshop without commitment, Landings would ask for £10 per head (which will be deducted from the £150 if your parish subsequently decide to adopt the programme). Resources are not included.
