A safe place of connection for church leaders
For the time being our Regional and National Hubs have merged to form a once a month online Zoom Hub so we can continue to connect and support one another, aiming to continue to be a resource of help in this interesting season.

National Hub: Leading Through a season, not only a Sunday
National Hub Zoom : Leading Through a season, not only a Sunday
We’d like to invite you to the upcoming Scottish Network National Hub meeting on Wednesday 3rd June at 12.30pm – 2pm on Zoom (details below).
As the global pandemic continues to disrupt our lives, our churches, our ministries and jobs, we’ve had to adapt what we do. There are many things we have had to learn over the last couple of months, and it is set to continue for a while. This is also an opportunity for the church to transform and thrive in new circumstances, bringing the good news of Jesus to a world hungrier for hope than ever before. God is at work and leading us through this change.
This Network Hub will continue the theme of 'Leadership through this season', as we seek to position our churches and organisations towards the changed world in which we live. There will be worship, prayer, connecting, input and discussion. We believe that through our time together, we might hear the Spirit speaking to us individually, giving hope and direction in this journey into the unknown.
To aid our discussion in breakout rooms we’d invite you to read a few blogs or articles in advance, around this theme. Firstly there is a short article from our friend Billy Kennedy (International leader of the Pioneer Network) who explores the place of online church going forward. There are two longer articles from Andy Crouch that can be rather sobering at first read – we’d invite you to read them through the lens of positioning our churches and organisations to thrive in the coming months and years.
You’ll find part 1 here and part 2 here. You’ll be able to participate in the discussion groups if you haven’t read these articles – however, we believe our conversations will be deeper if many of us have. We intend to give a good proportion of the time together to these small group discussions.
We do hope many of you will be able to join us.
This hub is for leaders (senior leaders, leadership teams, emerging leaders in churches, or in Christian charities / organisations).
