Fanning the flame with confidence

A morning for those who lead in congregations in challenging times

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 prayerful exploration of the challenge as we lead in this season of church life.

These in person events will be delivered (in line with PCI guidelines) at the following venues:
