One point of posting here today is to let local enough people be aware they don't have to be part of any formal leadership to come along. Details are on our WEBA website and whilst it'll most beneficial to come as a team, it will be personally applicable too.

Roy Searle retreat week....
I've just read my friend, Geoff Colmer's blog to see he's looking forward to Roy Searle leading their Ministers conference as a retreat this week. Well, I now know what Roy's up to all week - because from there he's coming over to lead a retreat for our Regional Ministers cluster - consisting of ourselves, South West & South Wales. This is about deepening our relationships with one another and God and I'm confident it'll have a fair share of fun included too - hey, they call this work! Following that Roy is leading a morning at Thornbury for us which is aimed at those in local leadership teams in our churches - elders, deacons, small group leaders etc. This is a Saturday morning, which a good number have decided to give up to come to and I'm sure it will be worthwhile. One of the things we're discovering is how crucial it is for a team to have a sense of journeying with God in discipleship together. I do hear a number of people saying they don't have time, which by observation proves to be counter-productive.
