                                                      Week 9 Poll Summary

                                                       

                                                      At our Q&A session on Wednesday we conducted a poll of the pastors and leaders present.  Over 120 pastors and leaders responded. With the easing of restrictions a bit less than half think their church will now return to some form of physical gathering, and the vast majority think they will still provide an online option of some form.
                                                       
                                                      This highlights to me that many churches, while planning towards the future restart of physical gathering, are not going there straight away.  Whatever timetable you decide on, the opportunity now is to take time to think through what you want to do differently and how to do it well, and work steadily to prepare for that.
                                                       
                                                      This is a watershed season most of us may only experience once in our ministry lives which provides opportunity to significantly pivot our church’s programme and life for a new reality.  Can I encourage you to discern it carefully – what to continue, what to stop, what to start.
