Do you often feel like busy Martha, tired and worn-out?
Are you longing for some time to pause and refresh?
Would you like to find space with God?
Do you want to learn new strategies to help you be and not to do?
Join us on Saturday 30 June – Sunday 1 July 2018 at Cliff College for a refreshing taster weekend for all GB England & Wales (GBEW) leaders. The weekend will follow GBEW’s summer conference and will explore the story of Mary and Martha and what we can learn from it today. It will be an opportunity for us to not only stop and pause, but also to learn strategies to help us be and not to do.
It isn’t always easy to give ourselves permission to stop and refresh ourselves. But we think it’s important. GB Ministries is passionate about this and so we hope you’ll join us in June!
The weekend costs £95, which includes all food, accommodation and materials – and FREE entry to GBEW’s summer conference on Saturday 30 June 2018.

On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
