All GB leaders are invited to GB's summer conference - which will include a special session looking at what we can learn from the Bible story of Ruth & Naomi.
The conference is for all GB's children and youth leaders and will take place on Saturday 6 July 2019 at Cliff College, in Derbyshire.
GB’s Discipleship & Evangelism Enabler Charlotte Hendy will be guiding us through the Bible story of Ruth and Naomi. GB’s intergenerational approach is one of its great strengths, and we believe that no matter what your age you can encounter God and lead other people to encounter God too. With a focus on intergenerational leadership and discipleship, this session will reflect on how – whether you’re a Ruth or a Naomi – we can encourage, disciple and support one another.
Leaders will also enjoy fellowship, worship, get to hear encouraging news, be equipped to take what they hear back home and much, much more.
The day's programme, downloadable below, will be as follows:
Start your day with coffee/tea, a biscuit and time to chat.
10.30am Council Meeting of the Girls’ Brigade England & Wales’ Network
This session includes worship and prayer, an overview of the financial accounts, a DofE update, a Build Hope breakfast update, news from GB Europe and GB International, a £125 challenge update, a look at District team roles, news about GB’s websites and database, and other news from around the GB family. An agenda will be sent separately to the local area delegates.
12pm GB's identity
Former GB chaplain and now international pioneer for The Rooftop, Rev Dennis Pethers will be leading an inspiring and challenging session looking at GB’s identity and how we relate to it.
Bring a sarnie, spend some cash at the GB shop, make some new friends, visit our prayer stations and relax.
2pm Ruth and Naomi
GB’s Discipleship & Evangelism Enabler Charlotte Hendy will be guiding us through the Bible story of Ruth and Naomi. This session will reflect on how – whether you’re a Ruth or a Naomi – we can encourage, disciple and support one another. There will be a comfort break during this afternoon session and worship. GB’s prayer ministry team will be available to pray with and for you.
Unless you’ve booked to attend the Ruth & Naomi retreat.
Last month, Girlguiding published its annual Girls’ Attitudes Survey - providing a snapshot of what girls and young women think about a range of contemporary topics. The survey encompasses the responses of over 2,000 young women, aged 7 to 21, from a variety of backgrounds across the UK. 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, well-being and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.Read more
