This two-part article moves beyond the basics of meetings, such as agendas, minutes and seating arrangements, to think about some new ways of creating effective business gatherings in churches.

Part 1, as Article A40, looks at three planning issues that may be new to many.

  • Plan the year
  • Think three tenses
  • Welcome review.

Part 2, as Article A41, follows on to cover three people issues.

  • Keep it small
  • Watch the context
  • Play like a team.

Both parts stand on their own but, put together, they offer six creative ways of rethinking meetings of your Church Council, Kirk Session, Diaconate, Trustees, Finance Team or whatever.
