Clergy Awayday

Not only was this our first chance for all of us to meet face to face, but we got to know Carol, a Lay Minister, and Ian’s fiancé, as well. It might have been Midsummer, but we needed a fire!

The clergy team met for the day to discuss our vision for the benefice according to Jesus’ teaching. We seek to be a Christ-like church: courageous, compassionate and contemplative. We want to live and lead according to Jesus’ commands:

“…go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20b) “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)
