Looking back on “A Vision for 2016”

by Andy Robinson

As well as building up to Christmas this is the time of the year when we nostalgically look back on the past twelve months. We had our staff team Christmas lunch a couple of weeks back and reflected back on the past year. I came up with some highlights such as baptisms whilst my colleagues […]

Reflections from Pastoral Refreshment Conference

by Andy Robinson

One of my favourite books over the last few years has been Jack Miller’s “The Heart of a Servant Leader”.
