just back from two weeks holiday which was wonderful including cycling from the south to north coast of devon, visiting friends en route and then staying in n devon which is an amazing part of the world. i took a few photos which i'll add at some point. but it's back into work and getting ready for greenbelt. hope to see a load of you there!
cms are hosting the kitchen venue this year. this is a space deisgned for conversation rather than long presentations or talks. cms began with the clapham sect gathered around a teapot in clapham planning the abolition of slavery and the founding of cms amongst other things. so we hope in the same way that conversation around a teapot today can be equally as catalytic and infused.
saturday, sunday and monday are themed on community, pioneering and justice - this all ties in with greenbelt's theme of new beginnings. i am hosting the sunday on pioneering with andrea campanale. the overall programme for the kitchen is here and sunday's programme is below. it's deliberately not named full of high profile people to draw crowds - the idea is that it is converstion about practice of mission. do come and join in.
for those of you who are pioneers - sunday is the day though i think you'll like the rest. sunday evening we are having a party/gatrhering for pioneers at 9pm - drinks and nibbles will be provided so do come to that - we want to pack the place and catch up with pioneers far and near. you can download a flyer here which doubles up as a driinks voucher.
if you are interested in pioneer training with cms i will be around all weekend - head to the cms tent or stand and they can arrange a time if i am not there. believe it or not, it's not too late to sign up for the year ahead.
looking forward to it...
