Peter Honeyball: June 2019
The Circuit Leadership Team were pleased to receive some well thought through and constructive Growth Plans from the churches recently. Helen Kirk then wrote, "Another recurring theme (in the Growth Plans) was a desire for more engagement with Bible study/small group discussion groups. With that in mind we have asked Rev Adam Sanders from the Regional Learning Network to come and lead our Circuit Consultation on Thursday 20th June, 7 pm at Stoke Mandeville (note change of date) on 'Encouraging and Refreshing Small Groups in the Methodist Church', looking especially at models & strategies for engaging people in this way and nurturing faith."
Please put this date in your diaries and come and share the evening with us. Rev Adam Sanders is the Regional Learning and Development Officer for Discipleship and Evangelism for the Connexional Team. I recently attended a workshop of his and I can promise you a useful evening led by an excellent communicator.
All are welcome as this is an open meeting.
