LLF Next Steps Group meeting 10 February 2021


The second meeting for 2021 of the LLF Next Steps Group was held on 10 February remotely via Zoom.

In line with its decision to do the LLF Course together, the group spent the first part of the meeting engaging with Session 1, Learning Together.

Following the decision at the last meeting to produce clear guidance for creating safer and braver spaces for LLF engagement, a draft was considered and agreed entitled, ‘Braver and Safer: Creating Spaces to Learn Together Well’. The guidance will be made available on the LLF Learning Hub after it has been reviewed and approved by the National Safeguarding Team.

The group suggested further changes and clarification in relation to the ecclesiology workstream.

The group agreed that the process of ‘listening to the whole church’ is a vital part of the LLF project. A four-stage approach to the task of gathering and communicating feedback from groups and individuals who have engaged with the LLF resources was discussed and agreed, with further work to be undertaken on refining the process.

The formation of a diverse Reference Group was discussed and agreed to be a matter of priority. The membership, role and task of the group is in the process of being finalised.

The meeting closed in prayer.
