Renewed Beginnings

supported self-reflection for churches

The church after lockdown

Using a model of reflection known as The Pastoral Cycle, Renewed Beginnings invites you to reflect on the life of your church and wider community – starting with your experience. From here, a process of further Exploration, leads to deeper Reflection, and finally to Action.

The session booklet is below for you to download, along with a video sharing the story of a church which has already used this material.

Everything you need is available to download below: the opening and closing presentations, which are available in both ‘PowerPoint’ format, and in ‘Keynotes’ for Apple users, and a pdf of the notes.
