Windsor Leadership Trust

A £90,000 Allchurches Trust Bursary Fund is making it possible for 21 clergy and other Christian leaders to benefit from training provided by the Windsor Leadership Trust.  

Windsor Leadership provides transformational programmes for strategic senior leaders from across all sectors, including corporate, public, military, education and not-for-profit.

Its foundations were laid in 1981 when the ‘Windsor Meetings’ were set up to tackle the big issues in society. Today, on intensive residential courses at Windsor Castle, participants are challenged to think differently, explore their leadership style and transform themselves, their organisation and society for the better.

“Allchurches Trust is particularly keen to develop the skills and knowledge of individuals where this will enable them to make a fuller, richer contribution to their organisations.” Sir Philip Mawer, Chairman of Allchurches Trust.


“To see how extraordinarily similar the challenges were across sectors was extremely encouraging.  Both times I came away energised by specific tips and tools I had acquired, and by the growth in confidence I experienced.

"The key was finding the confidence to be myself in leadership and to trust my own instincts — discovering that many of the values I have cherished for years as a Christian (honesty, generosity, integrity, kindness, humility) are widely recognised specifically as leadership gifts. I also learned to do less and to focus on the things which only I, as leader, could offer the organisation. The permission to focus on key tasks was liberating.” The Very Revd Dr Pete Wilcox, Bishop of Sheffield, Double-Alumnus of Windsor Leadership
