5.  ENNEAGRAM COURSE.  17th February 2018, 9am-3.30pm. Cost $45 per person.  Ever wondered about what this analysis of personality has to teach you? Join with others in self-reflection regarding your particular personality style, and how might this affect your way of being in the workplace, in the world and in your relationships with others.  The Enneagram is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types. In business contexts it is generally used as a typology to gain insights into workplace dynamics; in spirituality it is presented as a path to higher states of being, essence, and enlightenment. It has been described as a method for self-understanding and self-development.  Please sign the list at reception.

6.  ST LUKE’S YOUTH GROUP.  If you are in years 7-10 and are interested in coming to Youth Group, you are warmly invited to a pizza dinner and discussion on the new date of Sunday 25th February from 5.30-7pm.  Please bring along to this first meeting a parent, grandparent or caregiver as we will be deciding which day and time will be best and how often the group will meet.  Your ideas and suggestions for how youth group will run are welcome!
