THE EUROPEAN NETWORK GATHERING 2015
The Network Gathering took place over the weekend (14-16th August) at The Ammerdown Centre in Somerset.
There were people from Germany, Finland, Sweden, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, UK, USA. An incredible weekend of networking, workshops and worship but most of all Joy. So great to hear the stories from around the network, who is doing what, where and how, but also to share experiences, knowledge and dreams.
The worship took several forms with a silent communion on one accasion by Mike Holroyd, prayer stations as well as a cobbled together, enthusiastic and suprisingly tuneful choir. Mike played the music for each of the worship services and threw in a spirited rendition of Money, Money, Money when the offering was announced. It was, at times, fun and lively and at other times more peaceful and reflective but always full of spirit and joy.
A huge thank you to Mia Briggs as worship co-ordinator and all those who took part to make it happen.
The Ammerdown Centre is a lovely venue, with a number of different rooms, access to beautiful gardens, a pool, a bar (essential) and a Chapel that everyone said felt like home, which considering the mix of cultures present is no mean feat. A big shout out and thanks to the staff especially John for his witty briefings and incredible patience (sorely tested at times).
It was an incredible weekend and we are looking forward to the next gathering, which will be in 2017 (due to general conference in 2016) in Stuttgart. Everyone was overjoyed to hear it will be in the same place as the 2014 gathering, which was set in a lovely rural setting just outside of Stuttgart.
Session 1 of our preaching course has arrived! Tuesday 18th August at 730pm in bevendean. In this session we will be looking at BIBLE BASICS! Who wrote the Bible? When? How did it all come together? How do we read it?
We all need to look at the basics from time to time and this is a session that will be interesting and useful for everyone, not just those who are looking to preach.
Come along and join the discussion.
