    Please pray for: Diocesan Lay Conference

    Next month several hundred people from this diocese will gather at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick, Derbyshire for the Diocesan Lay Conference. Running from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st May, participants will have an opportunity to explore ways to enable lay people to be more effective in their own Christian Mission turning the seemingly 'Impossible' into 'Possible' through everyday activities, whilst enjoying the peaceful surroundings afforded by the conference centre.

    The programme will include:
    information about the Renewal and Reform programme
    the diocesan strategy for mission
    effective new forms of mission and outreach
    Any Questions? With senior diocesan staff
    entertainment and time for relaxation
    The aim is to have as many parishes as possible represented at the weekend; all seeking to make a difference by focussing on the question 'Are you ready for Mission Possible?'

    Pray for your representative/s and all attending Mission ImPossible. May it enhance discipleship and mission.

    Bishop Eggoni Pushpalalitha, Nandyal (South India)
