Pete Honeyball: June 2019
As our Superintendent, Helen has reminded us, Methodism flourished through the meeting together of small groups. So at our next Circuit Consultation on Thursday 20 June, again at 7 pm at Stoke Mandeville Methodist Church, we will be re-discovering the joys to be found in our Methodist roots. Rev Adam Sanders from the Regional Learning Network is coming to lead our discussions on 'Encouraging and Refreshing Small Groups in the Methodist Church', looking especially at models and strategies for engaging people in this way and nurturing faith.
Rev Adam Sanders is the Regional Learning and Development Officer for Discipleship and Evangelism for the Connexional Team. All are welcome as this is an open meeting: please bring a car full from your church! We will start with refreshments at 7pm as usual and we will aim to finish by 9 pm.
