The next meeting of 'Churches Together in DH7', will be held at the parish centre of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, Newhouse Road, Esh Winning, on Tuesday 30 January at 2pm (coffee from 1.30).

Please note the time of next week's meeting - earlier than our normal time, in case of poor weather.
(Please would you also check your e mail on the day - just in case there's more snow and we need to cancel, though I hope that won't be necessary.)

At our meeting on the 30th we'll be thinking about mission: how we reach out to our communities with the good news of Jesus. We'll be sharing stories of what's worked in our churches, what hasn't, and what resources might help us. Please come with your own stories, encouragement, and questions to share.

I gather that at the Catholic churches in the EW area, the wrong date was inadvertently given out.
If you know anyone who's thinking the meeting might be this week (not next) please put them right! Thank you. I'll also put up a notice at the parish centre tomorrow.

This is the 'Week of prayer for Christian Unity'. Perhaps you'd remember all your local congregations in your prayers this week. As the speaker on the daily service on the radio said this morning: 'Unity doesn't come from standing still. It comes from moving forward with a common purpose'.

I look forward to seeing you on the 30th.

with love,
