Evangelisation Brisbane CONNECT 

February 2020
Welcome to the first edition of Evangelisation Brisbane CONNECT for 2020.

Evangelisation Brisbane is currently moving through the development of a five year strategic plan in order to discern how we can most effectively inspire and empower parishes and communities to encounter Jesus and live the joy of the gospel. We look forward to sharing that with you in the coming months and supporting and encouraging you in your ministry. Nonetheless, our regular initiatives will continue, so we invite you to take a moment to read about what’s happening in the first few months of the year.
 
Evangelisation Brisbane is here to encourage, inspire and empower parishes and communities, so feel free to call or email our office to discuss how we can be of service to you.
 
In Christ,
 
Peter Pellicaan, and the team at EB
