A service has been created to capture the experience and focus of the inaugural gathering of the Shining Waters Regional Council. The possibility of Communities of Faith all over the Region sharing in the same prayers, readings, story time and songs feels like a delightful approach to begin to weave our hearts and minds together as we move more deeply into how we will collaborate and imagine new ways of being the church together. An outline for the service and the theme song are available on the Regional Meeting page.
