Future Focus  -  The way ahead  -  Congregational input required!

(Carswell Hub, 21 and 28 Feb 7.30pm and Sat 18th March 10.00am - 3.00pm)

 

Future Focus is a spiritual process that a whole congregation engages with together to look afresh at their community, to examine their congregational life and to discern what it is that God wants them to be and to do in the next phase of their life and witness. The process is run by an external facilitator working alongside the congregation and comprises of three sessions working through a series of prepared exercises in order to gather information and seek insights. The facilitator will then compile and correlate the information and provide feedback in a final report back to the church, which will become a vital reference document to aid our planning for the future. Your involvement and knowledge of our community is essential to this important process.  Join us in forging the way forward.   If you are keen to come please give your name to Maureen Hunter, Wendy Armstrong or Doug Lamont or by email to mhunterpolbae@yahoo.co.uk (01355 302647).   Teas, coffees and lunch will be provided.

Prayer

 

“He had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd.”  Mark 6:34

 

Lord, as we reach out to our surrounding community, we pray that you would give us compassionate hearts. Would your Spirit draw people to events like Kairos and Messy Church, and help us to have your vision for the future through Future Focus meetings.  We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
