Every month I attend the Moderators’ Meeting for 2 or 3 days. Last week we met back at Church House in London, the first time for a long time due to all the renovation works that have been going on. As with many of our churches there was a desperate need to modernise an aging building which had become a poor working environment for the staff. An important aspect was the installation of a lift, as the building has many stairs which made much of it inaccessible.
Please pray for:
- the staff working at Church House as they find their feet in a “new” building, and sort everything out which has been spread around several locations in London for the last 8 months or so
- the work of those staff who travel around the country assisting congregations in a variety of ways, including our own Revd Philip Brooks (Wharton & Cleggs Lane/Christ Church Little Lever pastorate in Bolton area) who has recently taken up the post of national Ecumenical Officer
- the work that is being done nationally to encourage us in Walking the Way, that it may help to develop a stronger identity within our congregations of being disciples following Jesus today.
