Over the past few months we've seen lots of diocesan missioners moving on in their ministry, and so a fair few new people are entering the missioners network, or have done so in the past year.
In Spring 2008 we will be arranging one or two missioners' induction days for people who have been in post for 18 months or less, and for those who work in other fields but who have also been given some part of the missioner's job to do. The planning group for these days includes Robin Gamble, Jean Kerr and Bishop John Went.
Dates and details will follow soon.
The National Missioners Conference 2008 will take place from Monday June 30 - Wednesday July 2, at the Maison d'Accueil, Merville, France. No, it won't break the bank to get there - but it will be an extraordinary adventure as usual.
THIS planning group includes Janet Russell, Tim Sledge, Robert Jones and Bp John.
Please put the dates in the diary and watch this space for further details.
