Last week we finished the Cor Deo full-time programme for 2013. It was a strong finish, but a sad time as we had to say goodbye to each other. Spending 20 weeks together might bond any group, but it is especially the case when together we have made it our ambition to chase hard after our good God! We finished up with our end of year meal, which was a memorable evening for all of us. Ron is now back in the USA for a few weeks.
Please pray for team 2013 as they head on to what comes next. Luca is planning to head to Naples to serve the Lord there and hopes to see a new church planted in the coming years. David D is plugging in to his local church for the next season of ministry. David F has a summer worship internship in Sunriver, Oregon, before starting his new engineering job in September. Fraser continues to pastor in Swindon. Matt is heading to North London to be a pastoral assistant and study at Cornhill. Mike is raising his support to come and work with us at Cor Deo later in the year (Peter & David Searight are very much looking forward to having Mike in the area!)
If you would like to stay in touch with any of these men, please get in touch with us and we’ll pass on your email. Luca and Mike will be sending out prayer letters, please request either if you are interested.
Youth Mini-Intensive: Bringing the Bible to Life – 26-27th July, 2013. Two days (Friday/Saturday) of Cor Deo designed for 16-21 year olds. We will study the Bible, wrestle with relevant issues and lean into God together as we ponder life’s big questions and prepare to thrive in the next season of life and education. This mini-Intensive will be led by Peter Mead and David Searight. Spaces are limited, for more information, please go to the Events page on the website and email us to reserve your space!
September Intensive – 9-13th Sep, 2013. This Intensive has filled up already, sorry. We will be announcing more Intensives before too long. The next full Intensive should be in January 2014.
Preacher’s Intensive – 11-15th Nov, 2013. Peter, Huw Williams and David Searight will be leading a special Cor Deo Intensive for preachers in November. We will meet from Monday through Friday. 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. (Please note: spaces are limited and this Intensive is reserved for those who are involved in some sort of preaching ministry.)
We have much to be thankful for, but are always aware of our need of God. Please pray for us over these next weeks as we seek to serve God effectively and make plans for the future. Thank you for standing with us in prayer as we seek to multiply ministry that shares God’s heart!
Peter for the team
