Methodist School of Fellowship

 lectures, countryside, kids stuff ...

... not just for the kids ...

 ... creative arts triumphs ....

... the Methodist School of Fellowship takes 130 people to Swanwick, all ages, all nationalities, and mixes them together for a week of relaxation and learning. I both spoke at and ran two afternoon workshops ... and had a lot of interesting conversations with all kinds of people. 

The environment was an ongoing theme with both theological and practical reflection on how ordinary Methodists can make a difference. Bible Study reflections, led by Roger Walton, each morning encouraged a deep engagement with Scripture - not just the easy bits! 

Quite a surprising gathering really.
