A Church learning to grow
Around 100 people from 26 of our benefices are attending the conference Leading Your Church into Growth. Training is being delivered by a fantastic team from a number of dioceses and from a range of different contexts and traditions. Subjects we’ve covered have included Committing Ourselves to Growth, Developing a Community of Invitation, Welcome and Hospitality, and Developing Worship that Helps the Church to Grow. Participants are already working out how to put the lessons learned into action in their parishes. Down-to earth advice and wise insights, mixed with healthy dose of humour and laughter, are giving us practical steps that we will take up on our return.
