It might seem strange to talk about gifts on Easter Sunday, but today completes the second half of God's Christmas gift.

Horsham visit

Horsham church’s Ministry Team Leader Simon Risson invited CCVT staff to spend a day in early March with some of their key leaders and members. This gave the church a chance to gain an overview of the Renewal Challenge/Movement process, and to provide input via elective conversations. Philip Kua and Jay Sawyer (Raising Leaders), Gabriel Hingley (Neighbourhood Engagement), along with Brenton Killeen (Mustard, a Youth Ministry organisation and friend of CCVT) led these conversations after Paul Cameron provided the overview. It was a busy and productive day.
