Give thanks to God that this district has had someone in a post like mine for many years now. That investment seems now to be bearing fruit in a change of culture in our churches.
There is a real openness to God doing new things in lots of places around the district. We have several examples of ‘new places for new people’ already in place or about to open up. I believe that this is evidence that the Holy Spirit has been at work here for many years, changing hearts and minds and opening up new possibilities.
