'How can our churches grow?' is the topic at the annual Circuit Consultation on Wednesday 20th June at Stoke Mandeville Church at 7pm.The Methodist Church is asking all congregations to consider how they might plan for growth.'Growth' can mean a variety of different things depending upon the church setting. Therefore, we would like to invite congregations to explore this at our consultation.
All are welcome for an evening of discussion and sharing, which will begin at 7pm with pudding (if you could contribute a pudding that would be very helpful!) Leading up to the consultation we will be considering the 'Our Calling' priorities of the Methodist Church in our Sunday services. Last Sunday focused on Worship. This Sunday is about 'Learning and Caring'. Service and Evangelism are the topics for the following two weeks.
The Circuit Leadership Team look forward to hearing thoughts and views and encourage as many as people to come along.
