We are living as leaders in a moment of delicate balances. There is a healthy caution about restoring church life too quickly while risk of infection remains, but that can tip over into fuelling a harmful lethargy.
There is a need to show courage in moving forward, but fine and fuzzy lines between responsibility and recklessness. How can we discern God's leading to restore a credible confidence and build measured momentum as we continue to gradually resume our congregation's life and witness?
A mix of pastoral encouragement, sharing of experience and prayer exploration of the challenge as we lead in this season of church life.
Leaders from congregations in the Republic of Ireland are welcome to sign up for any of the in-person gatherings in Belfast, Banbridge or Magherafelt. But recognising the distances involved in travelling and the different trajectory regarding lifting of restrictions between the two jurisdictions on the island, an online event for congregations in the Republic of Ireland will be held on:
- Tuesday 30 November 2021
- 10.30am-12 noon
This online event is free to attend. Bookings will close on Thursday 25 November at 4pm.
