“If your brother wrongs you, go and show him his fault between you and him privately…But if he does not listen, take along one or two others (mediators)…” Matthew 18:15-16
“First go and be reconciled to them…” – Matthew 5:24
What is RESOLVE?
Resolve was borne out of a desire to provide a biblically faithful mediation and arbitration service for those involved in commercial, church and other conflicts. It exists to encourage and assist the resolution of disputes and to facilitate reconciliation of the parties. To this end it provides teaching, training and a mediation and arbitration service, including ADR (alternative dispute resolution) & ENE (early neutral evaluation).
In addition we offer specific Teaching & Training via our:-
Conflict is pervasive & will inevitably affect relationships whether of long standing or transient. Unity cannot be maintained when issues which threaten to taint or destroy relationships are not addressed.
CONCILIATION & MEDIATION ‘practical’
A very practical follow on course to the above Reconciliation Seminar to respond to conflict in a positive manner resulting in conflict being an opportunity to develop resolutions & relationships, rather than cause destructive action.

1 Corinthians 6:1-8 says…
“If any of you has a dispute against another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgement instead of before the saints? Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge the trivial cases? Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!
Therefore if you have disputes about such matters, appoint as judges even men of little account in the church! I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you who is wise enough to judge a dispute between believers? But instead one brother goes to law against another – and this in front of unbelievers!…
Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? Instead you yourselves cheat and do wrong and you do this to your own brothers”.
** RESOLVE seeks to serve all Christians wherever disputes cannot be resolved through local church or individuals known to the parties regardless of their church affiliation and also to non-Christians provided they accept the Christian nature of the Service & Rules.
