Everyone is warmly invited to attend a workshop on Saturday 28th April to enable us to explore the issues raised by the change of date for last year’s candlelit carol services. The workshop will be facilitated by the 2Restore team which is headed by Rev Dr Russ Parker, whom some of us met at the Healing Day held at Portsmouth Cathedral last year. Below is a summary of their work, taken from the programme for that day:
“All churches experience occasional internal conflicts which are normally worked through, however some issues are not so easily resolved and their legacies prevent the church from engaging in its mission. Rev Dr Russ Parker’s team is pioneering a new resource which empowers churches to take ownership of their wounds and move forward to flourish in the way God wants.”
The workshop will be followed by a united service of blessing at 10am on the Sunday morning. Please note that there will be no 8am service on 29th April so that we can all come together and pray for God’s blessing on the future of our church.
Further details will be advertised when timings have been confirmed.
