Our leaders had an excellent awayday yesterday.
We decamped to sunny Whitstable for conversations about leadership and covenant and walks along the seafront (as well as a trip to the ever wonderful Harbour Bookshop where I picked up Hauerwas' Performing the Faith and Charlie Moule's NT essays for a song).
We finished the day with fish and chips on the beach as well as an agreed way forward on how we do leadership and a draft covenant for the home groups to discuss ahead of our church family meeting at the beginning of October.
This week I will pen a values and ethos statement for us to discuss.
So, it looks like after a year of conversations, lots of things are coming together nicely.
