Bishop John wants us to recognise, celebrate and develop our missionary identity – the team is meant to represnt age, gender, ethnic background and so on. Aspects would include: working with parish groups, working with young people, outreach, leading in prayer, organising events, social justice, administration and finance, communications, It and social media.

DARKER EVENINGS – and a real touch of autumn in the air. We understand that temperatures are set to climb. We thought that for our next excursion we might head for Conway – let us know what you think.
HUGH LAVERY – ‘The humble man is at ease. At ease with God and with himself, at ease with people. He is in competition with no one. Nearness to God enables him to think outside the sterile categories of success and failure. He is good company, neither brash nor reticent. Above all, he is strong. People wonder at the presence of confidence without conceit and of courage with agression. He is simple, humble and has learned of him who was meek and humble of heart.’
