convocation_2009.jpgThere were around 100 ministers and students gathered at Emerson College in East Sussex to be greeted and hosted by the intrepid team of five Forest Row Interfaith Ministers.  And what a gathering it was.  Every one of the student year groups since 1998 was represented.  The theme was 'Building Community' and during the course of the weekend we shared, prayed and discussed many aspects: where is our ministry now, renewal of vows, meditation, business reports, supervision, worship on the theme of Oneness, regional groupings, the development of the IMA, seminary teaching, and much, much more.  

Several ministers and students responded to the request to offer their reflections on the gathering and these are now published to the News pages of the new website.  Kenneth Day took over 900 photographs over the weekend, and a selection of his evocative images are linked from this page to give you a flavour of what was experienced.
