RECULVER DEANERY MEETING
On Saturday 17th October from 9.30am to 11.30am in St John’s Christian Centre, Swalecliffe, the next Deanery meeting is about community engagement. Kon Apokis and Keith Berry, the Development Workers with Together Canterbury (Church Urban Fund in our diocese) will be exploring this crucial aspect of
mission. It’s a 2 hour meeting and will be extremely stimulating. Personal invitations are always effective – people interested in the refugee crisis, Street Pastors, Foodbanks, and all that practical, down-to-earth stuff should be especially motivated to come to this morning.
The NEW GROUND Whitstable Ecumenical project develops young adults training for professional Youth Ministry through Oasis College, London. Now we require accommodation for a 22-year old male student from January 2016, for the following 18 months (but not for August or the main school holidays).
We can offer £50 per week. Additional expenses (e.g.food) may be negotiated with the student. We are grateful for God’s provision for New Ground so far. Can you help with this next step?
