The deanery have agreed to use the Leading your Church into Growth local programme to engage with the parishes on the question of the future of the Church in our deanery. There will be 5 Leading your Church into Growth Days starting in January 2020. The days will be held at the Penmorvah Manor Hotel. Everyone from the congregations is invited to attend these days and invitations will be sent out in due course. All the clergy will be attending these days to work with their congregations. Alongside these days, the clergy will be attending some residential 'colleges':
College 1 – Focus on Tell (evangelism) and Teach (discipleship)
College 2 – Focus on Tend (social action) and Transform (social justice) and Treasure (valuing creation)
College 3 – What should the Church look like in the light of what we’ve discovered in Colleges 1 & 2?
College 4 – How are we going to lead the change?
This programme is about us planning the future of the church of God together.And together, we - and the church of tomorrow - will have more of a chance of being the church that God wants us to be!
