June/July Study Course

Starting on Thursday 7th June, there will be a five-week study course looking at some of the themes that have been indentified as being common to churches that are growing.

These have been highlighted in the report booklet on our Church "Away Day at Home". We will be focussing on the report that looked at the growing Methodist Churches in the North East of England with some input where appropriate from Robert Schnase's book The five practices of fruitful congregations

We will be meeting at church in the Godfrey Room for this study group, beginning at 9:30am for around 90 minutes.

Details are as below

7th June — Being welcoming, hospitable and caring as a church community
14th June — Being responsive and actively inclusive of a wider range of people
28th June — Intentional spiritual development opportunities
5th July — Participatory & collaborative leadership
12th July — Provision of support which enabled change & overcame barriers.
