I was privileged to join Dave Male and many pioneer ministers at Ridley Hall recently, for a stimulating conference about Pioneer Ministry.
If nothing else, do have a think about your team of leaders in Messy Church: it may be that you are growing some people for whom lay or ordained pioneer ministry might be the next step.
What fun it was (as well as a privilege) to speak about Messy Church at the Children's Ministry Conference again this year.
A lovely crowd of people, most of whom seemed not to have come across Messy Church before, so very enterprising of them to come to a seminar on it when there was so much else on offer.
Even my panic at running a PowerPoint on someone else's hardware were dispersed by Graham Nunn stepping in nobly with his laptop and generously playing the role of glamorous assistant for the hour. So all I had to do was enthuse.
