Update #40 – April 2013

Thank you for praying for the reunion which we mentioned last time.  We had a very special weekend with participants from team 2011 and team 2012 joining this year’s team.  We were even joined by George Verwer for a session on the Saturday where he shared his heart with us.

Reunion2013 sWe have just returned from our Easter break and are now into the second half of this year’s Cor Deo full-time programme.  It is such a privilege to be part of this team and as mentors we know from past experience that the next weeks will slip away all too quickly!

Just to give you a taste, this week we have been looking at the synoptic Gospels, Gospels geography, the hearts of church leaders, relational preaching, John 20-21, the role of the Holy Spirit, 2 Corinthians, and I’m not sure what is coming today because David Searight and Ron are leading this morning.

Please pray for this year’s team as they contemplate what comes next.  The finish line will soon be here and they will be moving on to new employment, ministry involvement, etc.

Please pray for next year’s team too, we don’t know who they are yet, but it is not too soon for interested parties to start communicating with us.

This weekend three of us (including Peter) are going to Turin to the International Church pastored by Huw Williams (Cor Deo 2011), then on Monday Ron is speaking to UCCF staff in the midlands.  Next Friday a couple of us are going up to Edinburgh to speak to UCCF staff up there.  Then we have the Cor Deo Intensive . . . busy days!

Here are a couple of dates for your diary and for your prayers:

Evening Class – 8th & 15th of May.  We will be meeting for two evenings in May, from 8-9:30pm (at Ladyfield Church, Hungerdown Lane, Chippenham).  Together we will be looking at 1 John.  These sessions will be led by the Cor Deo mentors.

September Intensive – 9-13th Sep, 2013.  We will be holding another “A Relational Faith” Intensive in September.  We meet from Monday lunch-time through until Friday lunch-time.  For more information, please go to the Events page on the website and please contact us if you have any questions or would like to reserve a place.

We are encouraged, but very aware that we are in a battle.  Thank you for standing with us in prayer as we seek to multiply ministry that shares God’s heart!

Peter & Ron, for the team
