St John's Church AwayDay at Christ Church, Petts Wood,

We enjoyed a good day on Saturday May 12th..  We were led by Revd Peter Ball, from Westminster College, Cambridge, discussing            discipleship in the 21st Century and what it means.

First we were thinking about what actually being Church is.  Is it purely when we get together for worship for an hour or so on a Sunday, or is it when we as Christians are out and about in our daily lives?

 We heard how Jesus sent the first disciples out and how they led by  example.  They were ordinary people but they achieved much.  How might our discipleship look today?  How might it be different from some years ago?   Lots to think about.

The children had a happy day with Danny Ball and his team, enjoying games, crafts and fun activities.
