The date for our next Partnership Gathering has been set as Saturday 29th January 2022 9:30am – 12:30pm, and will conclude (as usual) with an opportunity to join together for a soup n roll lunch. We are hoping to meet at Shaw & Heyside URC and, if we can get the techie stuff to work, we may be able to go hybrid, or at least record some/all of it for later viewing.
As with previous gatherings, the objective is for as many folk as possible from our partnership churches to come together to listen and share on a particular theme and to get to know one another as individuals and as church fellowships. The theme for this one is looking at what is the URC and what are Missional Partnerships within it. Some of us have known the URC for many years, some of us are very new to it and maybe haven’t explored it very much, others are feeling weighed down by all the legal requirements and don’t see the point of it all. And I think most of us have questions about the Missional Partnership approach. To help us get to grips with what it’s about, our Mission Mentor (Lawrence Heath-Moore) will be leading us through some of the key points and issues so that we can ensure our Christian witness is as effective as possible.
Further details will be shared nearer the time, but make sure you have it clearly marked in your diary – we’d hate you to miss out!
