All Together: Sharing ways to live the Kingdom8 Apr 2015 By Sam Setchell
On Saturday 10 October (10am - 3.30pm), a day is being planned in Worcester for the whole Diocese to inspire, encourage and resource parishes in our Kingdom People journey. We’re hoping as many people as possible from across the Diocese will come and join us to worship, share and eat together.
The aim is to model different ways of being Kingdom People with practical ideas that can be used back in your own parish. This will include a ministry of hospitality with breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea available free of charge courtesy of a gift from a charitable trust.
There will be the opportunity to hear about and try out ways of engaging with your local area, including creative prayer ministry, fresh expressions, welcome courses, discipleship and bible study. Across lots of different venues, there will be ‘have-a-go’ hands on sessions, creative opportunities, talks, a place of continuous prayer, and special areas full of activity for children and young people.
We will be inspired by Mark Russell, CEO of the Church Army and Canon of Worcester, and there will be lots of activities for families of all ages. Some of the workshops will be more formal, whereas others you will simply be able to drop into and have a go.
