From this place of hope and reliance we begin to rebuild, holding plans lightly, listening to God, ready to adapt, and all the time trusting Him for our future.

Connect Autumn 2020 - Rebuilding after Coronavirus

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

It's good to be reminded of the word 'plans'. In case you've forgotten, plans are what we used to make before Covid!
Uncertainty has become a collective experience.
Alison Bryan (Trustee)

Mental health and Coronavirus

Over the last 10 weeks, and most recently during the last 10 days, we have found ourselves walking into unprecedented times. Our daily lives are mixed with the highly familiar and the completely strange. “Social distancing” - a contradictory term in itself, suggests something of our problem. For those living with others, they are engaging with them more closely than ever before - but seeing “everyone else”, not at all. For those living on their own - silence might have fallen in new proportions.
The best way to develop leaders is to empower and support people to take on new situations and responsibilities.
Jemimah Wright (Youth Director)

Discipleship and Leadership Apprentice

Grow as a leader, develop as a disciple

As one of our Discipleship and Leadership Apprentices (DLA). You will receive amazing training from Stewards' Trust, HTB College and OneLife, while working as part of our Youth Team.

For more information or to apply, please contact jemimah@stewardstrust.org.uk

In a nutshell

The Discipleship & Leadership Apprentice (DLA) is about growing disciples of Jesus and equipping future leaders, who will transform the world.
This is where we find ourselves at the end of a blessed year... looking to the future, with a recognition of our human inadequacy, but confident and excited about the assurance that there is power in our prayers.
Jimi Gale (Chief Executive)

Connect Winter 2019 - Imposter syndrome

Michelle Obama confessed this month that she still suffers from 'impostor syndrome'. Articulate, beautiful, intelligent, funny, a former First Lady, and yet still anxious...what hope is there for the rest of us? We can empathise. 

The more the Stewards' Trust grows, the more inadequate we feel for what lies ahead. 

What's the answer for Michelle, for us and possibly you?

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Philippians 4.6    
Thank you is never enough. We know we are here because of prayer….
Alison Bryan (Trustee)

Connect Spring 2019 - A fresh way to pray

I have been thinking that it can hard to stay fresh around our prayer lives and wonder if I can invite you to use this little model when praying for the Stewards' Trust

P = Praise   R = Requests   A = Ask   Y = Yell
Simple and familiar, yet also deeply profound, radical, challenging and transformational.
Jimi Gale (Chief Executive)

Connect Winter 2018 - From good to great

One of my favourite books is Good to Great by Jim Collins. Before you all go out and buy a copy, I should warn you it is essentially a thesis about the characteristics that lead to excellence in business. I should really get out more!

Does the Bible have anything to add about ‘greatness’? Yes, lots, but much of it would probably confound Mr Collins . . .‘What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?' and 'But many who are first will be last, and the last first’.
Disciples, helping to make disciples, who transform the world.
Jimi Gale (Chief Executive)

Vision Evening - Talk and round-up

Our Vision Evening on 17th May was hugely encouraging and exciting. So good to meet with Stewards' Trust 'family'!

We heard from God and those gathered with fresh ideas, wise words and inspiring pictures. It was particularly good to have a wide age-range of guests (8 months to 80 years!!), which so well reflected the nature of our events and the broad community we serve.
