A message from David Burrow... 

'Dear Friends,

It is good to be back after my sabbatical! Almost three months in and it seems a long time ago, but thank you for the gift of time.
Whilst I was away the lay team did a wonderful job of planning for the future and the Circuit and churches are now in the process of putting together a new Mission Plan. It has been good to see so many people in every church engaged in the ongoing process. As we define our priorities for mission we will hopefully see even more people involved.

Meanwhile we are all busy preparing for Christmas. No doubt some more enthusiastically than others.

Christmas can be a very difficult time for many people so, let us remember that Jesus left the glory of heaven to proclaim good news to the poor, freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free and to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour. (Luke 418-19). This is awesome good news and we must never be afraid to share it through our words and actions.

Christmas provides us with a wonderful opportunity to let everyone know who Jesus is and what he means to us. Let people know that God loves them and there is nothing they can do to make him love them more or to make him love them less.

Please do join in all the Circuit Christmas celebrations that you can and I look forward to hopefully seeing most of you at the various services I am leading.

And finally, my family join me in wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year to you and all your loved ones.'

                                                                    God Bless, David
