which is more than these three look like they have?! Standing around in a field in the cold doesn't look terribly strategic to me...

We spent the day with multiple cups of tea, some coloured marker pens and a big flip chart. And we came up with a five year plan for the circuit, as well as an interim 1-3 year aims chart, and the best bit of all - some direction about what they want me to do between now and the 1st February - phew!
I'm going to continue to work with the smaller chapels in developing their fellowship and outreach in to their local communities but I have also been given the remit to develop the "family finance support" and the bereavement support work, right across the circuit. Two topics very close to my heart, which I now have permission to launch into wholeheartedly - so exciting! I don't want to go to bed tonight as I am too excited about getting some plans made, but actually, I know that I have three months to get this kicked off, so there is no need to go made tonight - but I am excited [I know, I already said that!]
Night night xx
