Wednesday 1st December at 10am – 11am (and 7pm – 8pm) GMT
On Wednesday 1st December at 10am – 11am and repeated again at 7pm – 8pm GMT, I will be hosting an online event to share the latest news from the region and from our AGM and Festival Day in the presence of our President, the Archbishop of Canterbury. The event will run for about 45 minutes to 1 hour with a short briefing from me, a time to ask questions, and finish in prayer for our friends in Melanesia.
If you would like to attend and or know others who would like to join us, please let me know and I will send a link. Do also let me know if you have any particular questions / topics you would like me to cover.
Many thanks for your continuing support and I hope to see you online soon.
