Our Vision Evening on 17th May was hugely encouraging and exciting. So good to meet with Stewards' Trust 'family'!
We heard from God and those gathered with fresh ideas, wise words and inspiring pictures. It was particularly good to have a wide age-range of guests (8 months to 80 years!!), which so well reflected the nature of our events and the broad community we serve.
I presented my thoughts about the Stewards' Trust Vision and how, under God, we can take this precious ministry forward. A recording of my talk, together with slides, can be accessed via the video window at the bottom of this news item.
Guests responded to the three key points about growth at the event and the results speak for themselves:
- 'Broadening our invitation' = 70% said 'yes' (90% 'yes' or 'probably')
- 'Supporting our volunteers' = 78% said 'yes' (96% 'yes' or 'probably')
- 'Connecting the dots' = 80% said 'yes' (95% 'yes' or 'probably')
Vision is not about one night and we will seek to expand the communication with additional material. Watch out for our Vision Narrative and a short film to support it.
These are exciting times for Stewards' Trust. As I said on the evening, we are seeing growth in all areas. Thank you for being part of this amazing family.
