The Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) is a membership organisation that was initially established to develop and support the ministry of Christian Counselling. ACC sees Christian Counselling as part of the wider field of Pastoral Care and, in response to requests from churches, developed this training course as a resource for churches to help them equip and enable folk who are involved in Pastoral Care.
The Mishkan Resource Centre (Mishkan meaning Tent of Meeting, Exodus 33) was previously known as GHOBE ministries.
The Board envisages opportunities for Christian service through devolping an on going programme to nurture, equip and encourage Christians. There is space available for workshops, seminars and conferences. Rooms or the Centre can be booked for use by groups.
Already at the Centre are 'Sycamores Counselling ' individual generic counselling, and 'X plus Y', relationship resources.
