WMC: December 2017
Church Away Day @ Home — January 20th 2018.
We hope that as many people as possible will be able to come along and share together as we look to the future.
Come with your hopes, dreams and anxieties, your questions and your suggestions. We need to hear them all!
What kind of church do we want to be?
What kind of church is God calling us to be?
Where do we see ourselves in three years' time?
What should our priorities be?
Are we too busy?
What new initiatives should we be exploring?
What does it mean to be a church member in the 21st Century?
To these few questions, please bring your own to add
There will be parallel sessions for our children and young people, kindly run by others from our Circuit to allow those who usually work with these age groups to come along and fully participate.
Lunch will be provided.
Please let Keith or the stewards know if you will be coming. See you there!
