The Happiness Course Leaders Training Day - London
@Livability Head Office,, 6 Mitre Passage,, London, Greater London, SE10 0ER
This day will train you to run Livability’s “The Happiness Course” in your community.
The Happiness Course is a four session course based on scientific research, ancient wisdom and real life experience. Participants can apply the course to improve their own happiness, and churches can use it to make their community a happier place.
The Happiness Course was developed by Livability to support churches in having meaningful conversations about happiness and wellbeing.
In every session we talk about our experiences, examine what science tells us, and then explore practical tools that we can use during the week. The course starts by asking the simple question ‘What makes you happy?’ It then examines four different kinds of happiness – pleasure, success, relationships and meaning.

Championing Economic Justice in Your Workplace - London
@LICC, St Peter's, Vere Street, London W1G 0DQ
Economist, theologian, and church minister Andy Hartropp will teach on economic justice and lead attendees in examining how we might ‘do justice’ in and through our workplace roles.
God has called us to live in a way that declares his sovereignty over all things. And this is not a topic reserved for charities, thought-leaders, or brave B-Corp entrepreneurs. Championing justice in economic life is central to our own witness as followers of Christ. The values we display in our work testify to God’s own values – his love, his justice – and to his place in our lives, as well as our place in his workmanship.
