As part of What’s Next, an initiative at our church which is designed to begin the search for a second minister, parishioners are invited to open their homes to fellow parishioners to form focus groups whose members participate in a unique process called Appreciative Inquiry. Appreciative Inquiry focuses on topics such as experiences that people have had at our church, experiences that moved them spiritually, a time when they felt “most alive”,” most involved”, “most excited”and “most involved”. It also offers them a chance to answer the question, “If you had three wishes for your church, what would they be?” To date, focus groups have been well-attended and well-received. Focus groups are intended to give everyone a voice and to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to have a role in choosing a second minister for the Church.
If you have already completed a survey, please note that the Focus Group meetings and the Appreciative Inquiry meeting on Feb 3 for the whole congregation are designed to build on the information that is collected in the surveys.
Please note that this Focus Group meeting is fully reserved. Please go to the Feb 9 West Island meeting as seats are available for that meeting. We hope you will attend.
