Leading Your Church into Growth [LYCIG]
Brading Church 7.00pm Monday 22nd January 2018
As you may be aware, reps from our four local churches had the opportunity to attend a three day residential course set up by the Portsmouth Diocese in October. As St Helen's, Seaview, Brading and Yaverland Churches look forward to joining together when our new Priest-in-Charge is appointed, the reps that attended the course would like to invite you all to a meeting to discuss the initiatives that we would like to put in place. It will be a time of discussion and fellowship, tea and cake, as we share together ideas and thoughts on how we can get our churches to grow in numbers, in commitment and in faith.
Come and be part of it. You are very welcome.
Contact Paul, Mary or Caroline for further information or to share lifts.
