Returning to Church

RENEW, REFRESH, RE-ENGAGE: BUILIDING OUR PARISHES AFTER LOCKDOWN.

This is a new world we are moving into, full of uncertainties. We don’t know what resources we will have, who will come back to church, or how things will unfold over the next year. It’s looking as if a return to church will be a trickle-back rather than a flood, and we need to make the most of opportunities along the way. We have two different needs facing us: to re-establish our existing communities and ministry groups; – to reach out to those who have not yet returned and to new people. We are joining with Northampton Diocese to offer webinars to support these resources through September: 6th September: Fr. Nicholas King SJ will reflect with us on Christian Hospitality as we find it in the Gospel of Luke. 20th September (tbc) Jo Boyce will inspire us to refresh our music ministry with lots of new ideas to help us get going again. 27th September: Avril Baigent and Sarah Adams reflect on the practical steps to help re-build our communities.
