With LWPT in Bolton
David and I had accepted the invitation from LWPT to share in their annual Assembly weekend at Little Lever, near Bolton. This is the trust that has grown out of what we knew as LPMA and is for all Leaders of Worship and Preachers. We met in the light and modern Methodist/URC building and there were about 100 people who gathered from all over the connexion.
We shared some thoughts on worship and how we need to continually improve both the content and quality of the worship we offer. There was a wonderful concert on the Saturday evening, worship on the Sunday with some of the Assembly members preaching in churches across the Bolton & Rochdale district. We came together on the Sunday afternoon for a very meaningful communion service where we were all able to recommit ourselves to our calling as leaders of worship and preachers.
This was a well organised weekend and thanks to Brian Young and all his team.
