Alan's study leave

Bookmark and Share

Once in every seven years members of the clergy are required to take an extended break from parish life for creative thinking and study. And so it was that in 2014, after eight years of ministry at St. Mary's, I found myself wanting to be refreshed and to look more deeply into how people become Christians and grow in their faith.

I returned from my study leave with joy and very energised to continue my vocation. I would like to spend time thinking more deeply about my findings, but in the mean time have written a short report, which I hope you enjoy reading.
