- "Ask Me" People Training
- 2014 Aug 24, Sunday
11:45 am to 2:00 pm· Room 11
Here at Robertson-Wesley we have people visiting our church all the time, and the reality is that this church is big, there are lots of things going on, and lots of things to discover if you are new, and even if you have been here for a long time, to the scene.
Part of our new strategy to be a welcoming and inclusive community is to have people available on Sunday to answer questions and help people find their way within our midst so that people feel welcome. Fear not! We are not looking for experts, we are looking for people who enjoy meeting people, who enjoy having conversations and helping others, and who are passionate about this church.
We know that availability differs for most people, so the more people involved the better! Please join us for this training session and then decide if this is something you would like to do.
All ages are welcome and it doesn't matter if you have been at this church for 3 months or 30 years. If you have any questions feel free to talk with Rev. Karen Bridges
- Women's Weekend 2014
- 2014 September 12-14
Theme: Stardines in our genes and other mysteries...
Women's weekend will explore the biggest questions of all time! What is life? What is the cosmos? What is the universe? Will we ever have a theory of everything? We may not solve all of these mysteries in September but perhaps we will illuminate our corner of the universe. We will look as high as we can at the stars, as deep as we can into the ocean and the mysteries of life in-between.
The weekend is also a time to relax, eat delicious meals and most of all the time to get to know the women at R-W.
Registration forms are now available in the brochure rack.
