Recruit the teamPray as you prepare together to welcome guests on the journey
For an online Wellbeing Journey make sure you work out any technical challenges in advance, so your guests can watch the films and use breakout rooms.
For face-to-face sessions, where government guidelines allow, get your hosts / group leaders together and pray through the series, decide who will host breakout groups and arrange any catering
Use the downloadable Leaders’ Guide to help run the sessions (available by 10 January).
