Summer Spirit

Summer Spirit 2016 coverThe God of abundant love gives each of us gifts and enables us to use our gifts to build up and inspire God’s people as well as serve all of creation. Summer Spirit in 2016 will focus on how we can discover the gifts God has given us, and others, and how both individuals and groups can use these gifts to serve God’s purposes in the world.

Who should attend?
• All ordained ministers who want to nurture members to discover their gifts and use them in ministry and mission.
• All Elders and Church Councillors so they can better “build up the congregation in faith and love, sustain members in hope, and lead them into fuller participation in Christ’s mission in the world”
• Groups from congregations are especially encouraged to attend so you can work together later to implement learnings in your congregation. Group discount available – if you enrol 5 people the 6th one will be free!

What’s Happening?
• In the morning we hear from inspirational Keynote Speaker, Michelle Cook.
• Afternoon workshops when local people will share how they are discerning and using gifts.
• Time to meet with others from your congregation to plan action when you return home.
• Resource Centre available so you can discover and purchase new resources
• Opportunity for networking and sharing over meals, including evening BBQ
• Have a belly laugh with Pirate Church as they help us reflect on the theme through comedy
