Next Tuesday the full-time programme begins for 2012. This means that Ron is flying over on Sun/Mon and settling into his UK accommodation. Then the team come together on Tuesday for the first week of Cor Deo 2012. Meanwhile, Peter will have to be slightly less involved at some point for a few days as Melanie is expecting any day now!
Please pray for the team. It is a smaller group than last year, but we are just as excited to get stuck into the programme. Jon is local, while another Jon is commuting from Gloucestershire. Andy is coming over from Bristol, and Rob will make the trek from Torquay each week (new commuting record!) Please pray for the six of us to grow together as we seek to respond to God’s heart in the coming weeks. Please pray for the wives of the men too, that these next few months can be a really growing experience for them as couples.
Dates for the diary:
28th April – Delighted by God, London. This year’s theme is “Glorious Gospel” and we are really excited to be joined up front by Glen Scrivener for the day. Glen has a heart for Christ and a passion to see Christians applying the gospel to their own lives as well as to the lost around them!
30th April – 4th May – Cor Deo Intensive, Chippenham. Join the regular team for a week of Cor Deo studies in the Bible, theology, ministry and spiritual formation. We begin Monday lunch time, finish Friday lunch time, spaces are limited, please email for more information if you are interested in participating.
10th May – Bristol. An evening event in Bristol for both CU’s and open to all, let’s join together to celebrate the gospel and pray for the gospel work among students!
We should soon be confirming information on other Cor Deo training events, including our first overseas Cor Deo Intensive in Portland, OR, USA, in late July.
We really value your prayer for us to our wonderful God. It really is a privilege to be dependent on Him together!
For the team,
