Hi there Folks,
I am writing to tell you about an exciting thing coming up for us as a team.
As you know our Encounter School of Mission is not happening this year, however we would love to do a shorter version with everyone who attends our monthly staff breakfast. So all the interns, staff and ministry leaders will be involved. Over a period of 10 weeks there will be a mixture of teaching and practical sessions.
Our sessions will be held every Tuesday Morning starting from 7th October between 9.30am - 11am for ten weeks (last one will be on 9th Dec) in the overflow room or else we will be out on the streets together!
Here are some questions you may have:
Who is invited?
Everyone who attends our Staff Breakfast on the first Wednesday of the month. If you are a ministry leader, can you ensure your team know about this and that they are reading the portal updates. Interns and Key Volunteers are welcome!
What about if there is a day I can't make or I don't work a Tuesday?
Do not worry at all if you cannot make it. We would encourage you to come to what you can but it is understandable that things come up and some may not even work a Tuesday!
Why are we doing it?
We think it will be great thing to do together as we continue to see everyone, everyday releasing the Kingdom everywhere they go. And as a team, it is always worth encouraging each other to raise the bar of risk again and when people see us do it more, watch everyone else step up.
What about our offices?
We still need to make sure our receptions are manned whether that is with a trusted volunteer or with a staff member, so could be worth in our departments having a wee rota together.
What if I have done Encounter before?
Then come and teach the rest of us how do it!
If there any more questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
