Appreciating Church AI courses
We currently offer two training events: A taste of AI and Developing your AI practice (below). These events are currently organised by partner churches according to their needs, and their practice is to open these to participants from other organisations.
Developing your Appreciative Inquiry Practice
This 3-day residential course is designed for people who have already undertaken an introductory Appreciative Inquiry workshop such as A Taste of AI and who wish to build on existing AI practice and deepen their understanding.
The programme will be practically based and include:
AI principles in day to day practice
Creating great questions and protocols
Creating and delivering AI summits and events
Building AI practice into church and community life.
Revisiting the 5D process and SOAR
Emerging new approaches and tools
In addition to having completed Taste of AI the other course entry requirements are:
Evidence of having completed six months practice of Appreciative Inquiry; and
Prior submission of a case study for working on during the course.
