NEWS Conference 2017
Conference 2017 is to be held on Saturday 25th March 2017
Ian Coffey will be speaking. Please watch this space for more details.
At both previous conferences the following were addressed:
“We can see so much potential but are not sure how to reach it”
“We want to see our parish make a bigger impact where we live”
“We know where we’ve been but are not sure where we are going”
“We are open to new ideas but we’re not sure what to do next”
Church21 is about enabling parishes to develop:
. A clearer sense of direction
. A clarity of focus on priorities.
. A commitment to collaborative leadership.
. And confidence for the future
Subjects covered included:
. A picture of a developing church
. The stepping stones of parish development
. Roadblocks and Resistance
. Maintaining Momentum
Rev Ian Coffey. Director of Leadership Training at Moorlands College, and internationally renowned speaker, was the facilitator at both events.
In addition we learnt from churches that have embarked on their own journeys of development in very different contexts.
