Team Talk

Bringing Pastors and Leaders for encouragement and support

Bringing Pastors and Leaders together for encouragement and support through a weekly online meeting

  • A place where you are among friends who recognise the unique pressures you have, as a servant of God in the local church.
  • A place to talk tactics and find help during the lockdown
  • A place to be refreshed and encouraged

It seems our weekly webinar is proving to be a blessing and encouragement to many of you. We are delighted about this as this is our intention and because it is now a regular weekly fixture we have decided to call it ‘Team Talk’ – thanks to our brother Pete Campbell for coming up with the name. The idea is that just as a team needs to get together at half time to talk tactics, be encouraged, inspired and even sorted out by the physio – you need this version of this too as you serve in ministry. The longer our current situation goes on, the more we need each other’s fellowship, as inevitably more challenges will emerge. Being able to talk and pray together is a great blessing and so Team Talk is open to all who are in leadership in the life of a local church.

Next meeting:

  • 1.30 pm, Tuesday, 7 July, 2020
  • Topic: Reasons to Keep Going (The answer is Jesus!) – Hebrews 1:1-3
  • Speakers: Johnny Raine
  • This event is free of charge, but you will need to register here.


It can be a full time job just trying to keep up with COVID developments. Much of the headlines around relaxation of lockdown is portrayed as a UK scenario. However, each of the devolved nations have taken different lines and timescales.

The purpose of today’s discussion is to look at the latest information relating how schools have reopened across Wales. What can we learn from their experience as we look to opening church buildings and restarting children‘s ministries.

As well as challenges, there will no doubt be opportunities for Churches to reach out in new ways.
