We are dreaming a new way. Clearly focused congregations being who they are authentically and boldly in relevant relationship with the wider community. The day’s workshop will be highly interactive, reflective and creative. You will get to know each other better and cross-pollinate with another congregation. And you will go away knowing better what is y/ours to do and how to do it. The workshop is being held with members of the Beacon Unitarian Church.
We’ll take a break midway through the day to enjoy a potluck lunch It promises to be an engaging day with about 20 people from each congregation expected to turn up. You won’t want to miss this day of fun-filled, engaging exploration with fellow Unitarians from South Fraser and also Beacon.!
The workshop is being held in the Newton area at the home of Erin Knudsen and David Dalley – the address will be provided at the time of registration. Please know that parking is limited, and we encourage car-pooling. There are plenty of strip malls nearby for parking so if you are mobility challenged, ask someone to drop you off at the common house and they can drive to park at one of the nearby parking lots. You’ll want to bring a pillow to sit on as the common room at our venue has garden plastic chairs for seating.
Registration is required. When you register please let Ryan know what you plan on bringing for the potluck lunch, any food sensitivities or considerations that need to be taken into account, and whether or not you need a ride or can provide others.
For actual assistance on the day, we’ll need two volunteers each to assist with each of the following – for clarity sake, there would be four volunteers (two from Beacon and two from South Fraser) for each shift so the work will made lighter by many hands:
- Set up morning coffee, chairs, etc. first thing in the morning,
- kitchen management during lunch, and
- clean-up after the event.
