Early Years' Retreat - November 2021
Early Years in Ministry is a group that normally meets 3 times a year for mutual support for ministers between years 3-10 in their ministry.
It was wonderful to be able to meet in person again, and we were given a warm welcome for our pre-Advent retreat at the Focolare Centre in Welwyn Garden City. 9 ministers (plus the District Chair and the Convenor) were in attendance and very ably led by Revd Caroline Weaver on the theme 'Creation and Creativity'. Each session took a different slant on the Genesis 1 days of creation, and was both challenging and inspiring.
A variety of creative work also took place, some of which you can see in the picture. It was a gift of time and space to reflect with fellowship, worship and Bible study combined, and we are grateful to the District for enabling this.
