Circles of Trust
A series of three one-day ‘retreats’ has been organised to look at a number of very important aspects of our journey towards a merged new church. They will be held on Saturday 12th September, Saturday 3rd October and Saturday 31st October (covid-19 permitting) from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. at a venue to be announced later.
The facilitator, Mennie Scapens, is very experienced; some of us took part in a ‘taster session’ with her, and she is very good. You are invited to attend these important retreats. You can read more about them in the Bulletin for Sunday 23rd August service
(The idea would be ideally to go to the series of all 3. Ed)
Please contact Colin as soon as possible if you wish to attend.
The Grief Centre ( a well regarded organization based at 92 Hinemoa St Birkenhead is currently offering a series of webinars detailed below.
The live sessions can be viewed afterward for anyone who has registered but cannot attend at the time.

ANOTHER DAY CHANGE FOR COME TO QUIET
At our August meeting we agreed that the second Tuesday of each month would actually be a more suitable time for us to meet. Apologies that there has been another change, but we hope to stay with this day in future.
