Come and dream

On Saturday 17th February about 30 people gathered to re-imagine our ministry to families, children and young people. We established a common understanding that this work is essential because the Bible makes it clear that God wants everyone to belong to his family. We identified the things that are good about what we currently do, and the things that are not so good. We didn’t get as far as a clear vision, but we agreed that a vision would encompass prayer, welcome, encouragement, example, reaching out, relevance and flexibility in our approach. Overall, we saw that this ministry cannot be led and managed by a discrete team but has to be the concern and interest of the whole church, so we agreed that we need to share where we got to with the wider church and work out together how we move forward. Working out how to do that is in progress, and there will be a presentation at this year’s APCM.
