A total of 32 leaders were part of our leadership retreat from Friday to Saturday night. Over the course of the retreat, we spent time reflecting on the Christian characteristics of being a leader, the strengths that God has given us, and also growing in our understanding of other people's gifts. We also had some silent time to seek out how God is calling us to grow in him and use our gifts for the coming year. On Saturday night we shared a wonderful dinner (thank you to the team who made it possible!) and were greatly encouraged by our guest speaker, Ruth Limkin. There were so many moments of encouragement over the weekend, especially the privilege of praying together and witnessing how God is at work in each other's lives. Thank you to everyone who upheld this group in prayer! Please keep praying for our leaders, teams, and every single member of St Bart's - that we might keep growing in our desire to see disciples made and matured.
