Navigating Transition

28 Sep–2 Oct 2020 (Mon–Fri)

We will all face transition at various points in life – sometimes planned, and other times arriving via job, relationship, family or health changes. Navigating transition is not always easy. Transition has the potential for excitement and adventure but always impacts identity and throws up questions or doubts. Together we will explore how to recognise each phase of transition, understand its purpose and dangers, and seek God’s guidance and resourcing.

Community are an inspiration. We came as a small group and God met us all here in our needs.
