Last night saw the confirmation of 9 people at Christ Church, with the new Bishop of Doncaster the Rt Rev Peter Burrows. The church was packed, the atmosphere full of celebration, and there was a true sense of God’s presence with us.

Hendrik and Mavis are going back to Holland! Hendrik’s been our youth and family worker for the past five years and a bit, and is leaving to be a pioneer church planter in Rotterdam. We’re sad to see them go, but excited for what is coming for them in the future.
We had a fantastic farewell celebration at the beginning of February, and sent them out with our blessing and thanks.
