I had never been up to the Bunya Mountains in SE Queensland before, so it was great to have Monday leading four sessions at the Darling Downs Presbytery retreat.
We looked at life cycles in rural churches, consultancy processes, and systemic health in churches. Great to meet many of the ministers in this region.
I enjoyed spending the day with the Presbyterian Consultancy Team looking at healthy team processes in multi-staff churches and assisting declining churches find ways to redevelop. The notes have now been updated in our shared dropbox.
Back to Sydney this week for several training sessions including a day with the training team for Presbyterian Renewal Retreat Facilitators for NSW, Victoria and Queensland. It was good to hear the stories of clergy retreats, clergy wives retreats and women in ministry retreats. Looking forward to meeting and working with other facilitators later in the year.
Notes from our session today are being uploaded into our shared dropbox.
