Programme of Events:
Church leaders can sometimes find themselves ill-equipped to help those in their congregations in some aspects of this vital part of their lives. These meetings offer a chance for those charged with pastoral care to better understand the problems of people working “out there”. Others in our fellowships who want to pray for and support those in work will also find them of value, thus these meetings whilst concentrating on the needs of specific groups are open to all.
