snapshot I hope that you have all had a great summer – but the weather forecasters seem to be saying summer is over (or maybe that’s just Manchester?). However, the weather has never prevented us from celebrating the Gospel and fulfilling Jesus’ call to be salt and light in our communities.
At the weekend I had the privilege of attending the welcome service at Sedbergh LEP in the Cumbria Area. The Rev David Crouchley (Methodist) and Rev Carole Marsden (URC) were welcomed into Sedbergh LEP and the service was lively, with Richard Passmore (Cumbria Fresh Expressions) challenging us about the way in which we engage with the community and see fresh connections that can be made through many different age or interest-related groups.
Please pray for
• the ecumenical work in Sedbergh and the surrounding area
• the God for All ecumenical project across the whole of Cumbria as it seeks now to develop and grow truly ecumenical mission communities
• the ecumenical bridge-building in your community that will enable us to do more for the Gospel than any of us can do apart from each other
