Lunch often have people back, especially guests, new folk

Monday Administration day, at the moment spending a lot of time getting applications in for development loans for our big move as a church to a purpose built coffee shop and Performing Arts Centre

Tuesday Key meeting for prayer and discussion with church leadership, We talk and pray about big picture vision, and also visitors, guests, people we need to pray for and follow up on. Working out what worked on Sunday, getting plans in place for next Sunday

  1. Thanks Mark. It was very helpful.
    I think I might structure Saturday’s differently being a one eyed Eagles fan!
