So for our last PCC meeting we cancelled our usual Monday evening meeting for an away day instead. We spent the day at Brockenhurst church hall.
I had a bit of a nosy around the church hall as the building is a new extension on the existing church, with a hall, meeting rooms, offices and a creche. Good to see an example of a church that was done this well! Something for us to bear in mind as we continue working on our buildings proposals.
It was a great day where we had a lot more time to spend reading God's Word, praying and having fellowship with one another.
We had one primary item on our agenda for the day, and this was to spend time on our mission priorities.
From all the research that was conducted with you, other local churches, and local government/council some proposals were drawn up in advance by the strategy group.
We reviewed the proposals and discussed the finer details and logistics around them.
As you should be aware, whatever changes we implement will see some existing groups grow, some new groups start to shape up, and unfortunately other existing work start to wind down. So it is really important that we get this right!
We will be spending a bit more time on this before communicating our proposals. Whatever happens though, please know that we are here to support you through this change, and explore the opportunities available to you.
Till next time!
