Thrive

By Hayley Beckett on 5th March 2020

“”Thrive is a nationwide initiative, which aims to encourage a variety of networking between ministers’ spouses from those who are training right through to those who are retired.  This networking will include different sorts of local and interest groups as well as events, and sharing via social media or email (for those who prefer it). 

“Ministers’ spouses have many different occupations, careers and talents which we want to affirm and celebrate.  Being in contact with others in similar circumstances (i.e. married to a minister) allows us to be an inspiration and an encouragement to each other so that we can grow and flourish wherever God has put us. 

“Our next biennial Conference will be held from 8th to 10th October 2021 at the King’s Park Conference Centre in Northampton. Booking details will be advertised in due course. Churches are encouraged to pay for their minister’s spouse to attend, as part of the support that they offer to their minster and his or her family.

“You can contact us on thrive.baptist.networks@gmail.com or search for us on Facebook under Thrive UK Baptist Networks (look for our logo).””
