During Lent 2017 our three cell groups were joined by a few extra people as we explored together the Diocesan strategy and its impact for our South Leightonstone group of parishes. On each of five sessions we took one of the strategy’s “levers of change” and looked at it in the context of a set scripture: (1) Nurture a confident people of God; (2) Develop healthy churches and leaders; (3) Serve the local community; (4) Re-imagine our buildings; and (5) Target support to key areas.
The material provoked some very interesting discussions, and some good ideas and suggestions were put forward. To try to pull these together, the leaflets invited a personal response on the back page. If you were in one of the groups please do consider putting some of your thoughts down on the paper and getting it back to me.
