‘THE GAP’

Taking stock, dreaming big, making it up as we go along…

In 2015-16 the Holy City programme takes a different shape. The shape of recent years is gone, but not completely.

We’re taking a ‘gap year‘ to ask questions about our methods and opportunities for engagement, and what new ways may be needed.

We’ve always been ready to change our patterns, to avoid being fixed, to consider better ways of speaking, listening, doing and connecting with new communities of folk. That’s what this session is all about.

Come and investigate the gaps with us. Who knows what new something-from-nothing we might create?

In October, we’ll be starting with ‘The End‘, a very informal get-together, and then concluding in June with ‘The Beginning‘, a celebration. What happens in between is up for grabs… keep visiting the website for updates or sign-up for our eNews (top right).
