Thrive Learning Group

933E6031-EBB5-4E3D-B9C6-B40924105F25A team from Holy Trinity, Tidworth and St James, Ludgershall have formed a Thrive Learning Community alongside other Benefices and Parishes in the Ramsbury Area. We met in the middle of June for two very long and full days that were focused on our journey so far, who were are and where we have come from. We began the course by using post-it notes and string to construct a bayeux-tapestry-style story of the small villages of North and South Tidworth being subjected to a serious of invasions by the British Army, first in 1914 and then again and again over the decades with the largest invading force coming to Tidworth this summer as the Army ramps up its re-basing program.
From the very start we knew that we were going to have fun on this course but we were all surprised by the boldness of our vision after only two days of reflecting on where we had come from and wondering where God might lead us next. To say that our vision for 2022 is ambitious would be an understatement of epic proportions but  there was something about the way that the course was run that freed us to dream dreams boldly and with a real sense of hope, even if the timescale might be unrealistic. It was a brilliant couple of days and we all came away from the course exhausted but encouraged, and looking forward to our next meeting at the end of November when we’ll be considering Leadership!
