Network Day - Nov 17th

Dear All, 

Just a reminder of the Network day on the 17th of November. 

I hope you are able to come! Do let me know to give me a rough idea of numbers.


Network Day  - ‘Our vision and gifts’
Since I last wrote to you all, ‘Stream’, the visioning team, has been meeting to ponder and pray about the future of the network. This time of discernment and prayer has led to the planning of our next network day:
17 November at St Andrew’s, Edenbridge10-14 - bring and share lunch.
We are inviting all of you to be part of this process, to pray and ponder our vision, your own gifts and if you can contribute in any way to the network and its work in the diocese. During our meetings the members of ‘Stream’ have come up with different areas of interest and with this letter I would like to invite you to ponder if you feel drawn to any of these areas:
·      Training in Spirituality
·      Equipping the local church    
·      Events e.g. Spirituality Feasts etc.             
·      Giving and encouraging Spiritual Accompaniment     
·      Giving and encouraging Quiet days
·      Publicity and outreach
·      Short Courses in spirituality and prayer
·      Etc. other areas you think are missing
Before coming to the network day, we would like to invite you to ponder and pray with these different areas. You might also know of somebody who would be interested. All are welcome to the meeting to ponder, pray and acknowledge our gifts. It is also important to say that there is no pressure to contribute, being part of the network is in it self a contribution and a gift.
We are hoping that the day will be a day to pray and come together to share our gifts but also to celebrate and we therefore invite you to a bring and share lunch.
