On Saturday 22nd August a group of 13 elders and the minister met at Whiteburn Farm for an 'away day' where they took the opportunity to discuss the past, present and future of the church.  They explored the meaning of eldership, the successes and frustrations of the past and began to consider the challenges and vision for the future.
