Last year our congregation undertook a SWOT process and developed some specific priorities for Ministry Team that we have been working on.
We will spend time together being refreshed in Scripture and prayer, hear updates of latest findings on church in changing times in Australia, and workshop together as we reflect on our congregation’s health in this time of change.
Pastor Nathan Hedt has, with regret, had to cancel facilitating the event and attending from Melbourne due to health. The retreat will be facilitated by Pastor Paul and Karen, Cheryl, and Emma.
This day is for everyone who calls Good Shepherd their church home and we sincerely hope you will be able to attend this important day.
To meet off-site as a congregation for spiritual refreshing, learn what the latest research shows about church in today’s changing world, and to workshop on our congregational health in these changing times
