For the first time Stories of Childhood went online, and we had over 80 people join in from far and wide for 2 hours, packed with time for quiet reflection, two thought-provoking and helpful presentations from our guest speakers, Dr Vivienne Mountain and Rev’d Mat Harry, and small-group discussions, sharing of ideas and praying for each other.
