Noticing what God is already doing and when your church and community is at its best is at the heart of the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) model which forms the basis for the Parish Planning Tool.
The feedback from churches which have already begun the PPT process is overwhelmingly good. Here is what some have said:
“it was a real blessing to have the children integrated and participating as part of our church family.”
“It has been a privilege to be a part of this vision process.”
“It was a really exciting session where everyone worked so well together. Lots to take into the Design phase.”
“Thank you so much for making last Saturday at Bradwell so successful.”
“We had a wonderfully fun and creative time together.”
PDAs can help you plan and facilitate one or more events to begin working through the PPT process together, whatever the size or context of your church(es).
