The Vision and Practice of Making Disciples
9:30am - 4pm

This day will be an interactive exploration of discipleship and disciple-making. If making and growing disciples is our goal as churches on mission, what can we learn from Jesus’ own approach to discipleship?  What does discipleship mean and how do people become disciples?  How can we align church life around practices that help one another grow and mature as disciples?  What small changes can we make to the way we do things that will make the biggest difference?
A great way to start the year - reflecting and exploring how to turn vision into reality
Suitable for church leaders, leadership teams, small group leaders and anyone with a passion for discipleship and disciple-making

Richard's goal is for the day to be inspiring, practical, personally engaging, fun and relaxed - purposeful but not time pressured.  There will be a mix of learning and input, personal reflection and small group discussion and it is hoped that everyone will leave with a clear sense of what their next steps on the journey might be.
The coffee and pastries will be ready from 9.30am
