Ministers across our town meet approximately 9 times a year. Most of these are lunchtime gatherings where we eat, pray and share together.
Its a great opportunity to support one another with these times being first and foremost relational, but also attending to 'business' where we need to. We sometimes invite in people in from other organisations to share what they are doing (i.e. fostering, chaplaincy, international students).
Twice a year the meetings are opened up to our 'champions' with the objective being to create a link between clergy and members of our churches, to both keep them informed of anything relevant and also to hear from them on any issues or initiatives being proposed.
