Around 130 leaders and supporters attended GB's summer conference today.
The event, at GB's home of Cliff College, focused on using GB's 125th birthday next year and how churches can use it as a tool to make gospel connections. Den Pethers, Director of The Rooftop, led the Volumise session looking at this important issue.
The conference also gave GB leaders the chance to hear the latest GB news, and to worship and network with each other.
One GB leader says 'I feel inspired by today's session and can see possibilities for our group and church.'
Another says 'Plenty of ideas and a thought-provoking discussion.'
And another leader adds 'We know we do a great job with the girls but we also know there is so much more we can do with the families and wider community.'
Other conference updates included:
* Saying farewell to GB's Director Ruth Gilson and GB's Operations Co-ordinator Sue Cutting, and welcoming new Director Jules Murdy
* GB International updates on ICGB 2018 in Zambia and the under 30s team going to Ghana for a GB Gathering this summer.
* News about GB's new Hope programme, being released this September, and how it can be used in GB's 125th birthday year and beyond.
* And much, much more.
