"It is as if the space has tapped into a vein of spirituality in our pupils that none of us, themselves included, knew they had. Even pupils who exhibit challenging behaviour in some lessons have been calm as soon as they walk into the space. Pupils who were already Christian seem relieved that their classmates now understand how faith helps them through their daily lives."Head of RE, Pakefield High School (Suffolk)

Growing Together

We start every year with setting aside time to be together as a team. This year on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th January we gathered together in Standford Le Hope. Proximity Church was our host for our time together. We were blessed to spend the first afternoon in Hassenbrook school where Proximity Chaplaincy has their office, a beautiful classroom which hosts Cafe once a week serving toast. They meet regularly to mentor students and as a team to pray and bless their community. It was a real privilege and honour to see where this work takes place. 

We took time away from our weekly to do list, away from emails and everyday life. We updated eachother, shared stories, encouragements. We spoke honestly and openly about challenges, fears but also our hopes and dreams. 

It's incredibly valuable to set aside time like this to reflect on the year just gone and dream together about the year to come. We strengthened our friendships and team dynamic. We even played a competitive couple of rounds of Bowling

Have you taken time with your team? How do you grow and strengthen your team? 

These are some of the richest moment of our year as we commit to and pray for all this year has to hold. 

Watch this space.
