The Sacred Enneagram Workshop…. The Enneagram is one of the most helpful tools to help you discover who we are and how we relate to God.  Based on the nine classic archetypes of human character the Enneagram reveals our unique way we can find our way home to our True Self and to God.  This workshop is for anyone who’s interested in learning more.  Led by Christopher Heuertz it will be held at South West Baptist Church on Nov 25th from 9.30am to 4.30pm.  The cost of $80.00 ($50.00 for students and beneficiaries) includes a book.

Mission Discernment – Helen Clyde Smith from the Presbytery addressed Session recently to explain the need for all parishes to keep working to discern their future and what God is calling them to be.  Session has agreed we need to continue to address this question and would like to set up a small group to work with a Mission Enabler from the Presbytery to continue to wrestle with this.   You may be interested in being part of (or feeding into) a group that will seek to discern where God is calling us as a congregation, (God may be whispering to you!) and if so talk with Dugald.
