As part of the Allchurches Trust Grant to build national support for Estates Ministry, we have two local Leadership Pilots beginning, one in London and one in Birmingham.
The Birmingham Pilot began last night with 17 people from outer estate and inner city Anglican parishes gathering for a Learning Group that will Deepen Formation and Leadership.
The London Pilot begins soon – click here for details.
The Pilots are quite different and there will be a deep evaluation of them carried out by Church Army. We hope that this will be of value to the wider Church, and that all denominations will find ways of enabling people on estates to express all their gifts.
We know that local leadership is one of the key themes for estate churches. Our National Conferences next year will explore this. Details of dates and venues coming soon.
Please pray for all those involved in the Learning Pilots.
