Community engagement is never about the size of your church or how many community programs you have running, it is a way of thinking about the influence you already have.
Meeting needs will often default to a hand-out, engagement will result in a hand-up.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT ROUNDTABLES
I am excited to let you know that I will be hosting another round table on the 14th September in Charnwood, ACT!
The day will help senior church leaders, all pastors, chaplains, and those leading in the community engagement space (including those in community engagement roles in faith-based organisations) to think, be inspired and reflect upon how we reach our communities most effectively.

Would love to see you there.
