We are excited to share with you events that are reported by our Regional Couples on this page. This will include any gatherings, zoom meetings, and celebrations that a Region is running. It is also a brilliant way of advertising any Regional expansion activities; and particularly to welcome new members and Teams to our Teams GB family.
Dear Friends in Teams
We hope you all remain well and have had a good summer.
Remember to register for the Southern Regional Gathering (many thanks to those who have already registered).
We look forward to welcoming you to the Gathering which takes place on Saturday 2nd October, via Zoom, from 10am to 2.30pm with breaks, finishing with Mass at 3pm.
Please register on the TeamsGB website using the booking form link on this web page
We ask you to register so that we can send you the link to the Gathering. Programmes will be sent out in advance of the day.
The Southern Regional Gathering will be addressed by Fr. Rob Esdaile of Our Lady of Lourdes, Thames Ditton, who will also celebrate the livestream Mass at 3pm.
We are fortunate to have, as keynote speakers, Ingrid & Padraig Lewis from Ireland, who are leading the Marriage Masterclass and Teams EXPERIENCE initiative.
The 2021/22 Study Topic “The Christian Couple: Leaven of Renewal for the Family and Society” will be introduced.
There will be a mid-morning break, a lunch break and a mixed teams/ workshop session – an opportunity to meet other couples in groups.
You may also attend the Northern or Central GB meetings on 25th September and 9th October respectively.
With best wishes,
Yvonne and Peter Newman, Regional Couple for Southern Britain
Dear Friends in Teams
We are pleased to tell you that Registration for the Northern Regional Gathering on Saturday 25 September is now open.
The Gathering will be online – via Zoom, from 10am, with plenty of breaks, a Key-Note talk and some discussion groups in the morning.
After lunch there will be Mixed Teams hopefully finishing with Mass at 3pm (not yet confirmed).
We will be delighted to welcome Fr. Eamonn Mulcahy, who is a Spiritan priest based in Manchester, to speak to us. We met Eamonn at a NW Lenten retreat at the beginning of 2020 and asked immediately whether he could join us for a Regional Gathering!
Eamonn asks whether it might be possible for a small group (3 couples?) to meet him live and that meeting be ‘Zoomed’ to everyone else. He would be able to say Mass at the end of the day in the same venue. All Zoom participants would be able to join in the questions following Discussion Groups. Is any Team able to offer this hospitality in a big enough room with good WiFi within day-trip distance of Manchester? Please let us know ASAP if you can.
Please register using the booking form link on this web page.
We suggest that you make one contribution of £5 per person registered. Programmes and Zoom links will be sent out in advance of the day.
You are also welcome to join the Southern or Central GB meetings on 2nd and 9th October.
The final hymn of the Opening Liturgy of the Gathering will be “Laudato si o mi Signore”. (If you wish, you can become familiar with this hymn beforehand using the link in the email of 14/08/2021 sent by the Regional Couple.)
We look forward to welcoming you to the Gathering.
Sue and Paul Rowney, Regional Couple for Northern Britain
The Central Regional gathering will be held on Saturday 9th October 2021.
