Refresh in Lent 2018 with Bishop Paul
“I am increasingly aware that sustaining momentum in ‘Growing Disciples wider, younger and deeper’ is dependent on the spiritual vitality of those who serve and lead across our churches,” writes Bishop Paul.
“Some have borne the heat through intense and uncertain seasons of ministry, others have carried the burden of leadership in some area of church life or in their day to day working world. That is why I am going to be hosting a series called Refresh in Lent, open to all but especially for anyone who exercises some aspect of leadership in their church, workplace, or wider community.
“Refresh will take place over two consecutive weeks in six locations around the diocese. I will be joined by some of the younger leaders we are nurturing who will contribute in different ways to the evenings, all you need to do is come along open to receive and be refreshed. Further publicity will be going out to parishes, though it may help to have the dates now if you would like to integrate these evenings into other plans during Lent.”
