Parish Council Retreat
Your Parish Council gathered together for a full day retreat on Friday May 5 at Manning Memorial Chapel on the campus of Acadia University. The day was facilitated by Susan Barthos, an expert in change management & corporate conflict resolution, and no stranger to St. John’s!
Council members shared deeply personal and heart-warming stories demonstrating the essence of St John’s. We looked at a recently published article on eight trends that are affecting churches in 2023, and discussed how St John’s aligns with them. Then we looked at ourselves, to determine our own strengths on your leadership team. And finally, we looked at the stresses that are been faced by St. John’s today, and what we may look like in the months and years to come. There is a lot of optimism and excitement on your Parish Council, and together we will chart a path forward to allow St John’s to continue to thrive locally and in the wider world.
