imagine....


We’ve now finished two evenings in this round of ‘Imagine’. I can’t speak for those who’ve attended, but from mine and Alisdair's perspective, they’ve gone well. We’re trying to encourage some good habits for leadership teams and groups of deacons around WEBA so it was great to hear some feedback about changes some Churches have actually done following our last session, which focused upon ‘change’. For example, Nailsea have re-vamped their leadership structure and St Marks have had a congregation-wide listening to God exercise which seems to have gone well. For Imagine 3, we’re focusing on the whole issue of developing Christian character and how we can encourage such development among ourselves as those given some responsibility in local Church leadership as Ministers/elders/deacons etc. This time around we’re trying to root what we all believe into our practice and some of the synergy between following Jesus as an individual disciple, being part of a team and the missionary imperitive. For those not part of WEBA, Imagine is something Ministers are encouraged to bring their leaders to as a team – we’re exploring how we can encourage healthy habits as teams, which will do us, the rest of our Church and ultimately those beyond it a load of good.

Thank you for the slightly larger font - much easier on the eyes of those of us who still have 15" screens! (And presumably for those with laptops too)
