At last (2)...!

It has taken longer for me to get posting but I have just managed a photo of Stephen and I at the Conference in Scarborough.

I want to say a big thank-you and echo all that Stephen has said about the warmth of support and encouragement we have received, not least from Martyn and Ruby. We have a tough act to follow as they have brought great vision and energy to their year of office (and they have been tireless bloggers!); we do feel a great sense of continuity with them however.

Throughout they have been outward looking, urging the Church to open its doors and windows, and we hope that we can continue that stimulus to interact with our society and 'serve the present age'.

We know that we are simply your representatives and you have given us the great privilege of seeing how God is already at work in the local communtities where our churches, circuits, chaplaincies, fresh expressions are all seeking to live out the Gospel, not always in easy situations.

So we are very excited about journeying with you this year...
