Another guest was Deacon Vernon Van Wyke, Warden of the Methodist order of Deacons of the Church of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa. Vernon led a bible study and also told us about the work in Southern Africa - it was an inspiring talk.
The Vice-President also led a bible study and it was my privilege to share in leading worship with the Warden, Deacon Sue Culver and others. Daleep and I also had the opportunity to address Convocation and engage in discussion with those present.

The Diaconal order is a great gift to the church.
We need to receive the gift with thanks and ensure that we enable and support the deacons as they fulfil their calling and enrich the Kingdom.
