From the Superintendent: Summer 2018
As we draw to the end of a challenging year I want to reflect on the amazing capacity we share for learning, innovation and devotion.
Mission Shaped Church:As we look to the future we need to be aware of where we are and where we have come from. This course, over five weeks, allows us to do this but also prompts us to make plans for the future. From September the hope is that we will begin to put in place a fresh expression of church in the circuit. This will come, in part, from the Circuit Leadership Team discussion of the contents of this letter, which formed the basis of my report to the Circuit Meeting.
Circuit Prayer:We have shared in an amazing series of events focused on prayer. From Praying in Colour in September at Trinity to an immersive sacred space in Maldon in October. In November (Broomfield) we prayed for peace on a room sized world map and in January (South Woodham Ferrers) shared the ecumenical work of twelve local groups amongst which were Street Pastors, Stop the Traffic, Food Bank and Christians Against Poverty. February saw us fasting and on Palm Sunday (St Augustine's) Celebrating. In April we shared the Easter Offering at Hatfield Peverel. You have three more opportunities to share in these opportunities for blessing. May 20"‘ at Braintree to celebrate Pentecost, June 24"‘ at Moulsham Lodge where we will walk the garden Labyrinth (afternoonl evening), and July 29"‘ we will prayer walk from Trinity to Hall Street with a video link for those unable to walk.
Data Protection:Would you like a training event to be arranged? We look forward to what the future holds, certain of God's presence with us.
Yours in His Service
