Families and visitors

The Summer Conference of the Faith Movement is still going strong - we had an excellently presented and delivered talk this morning on the Church by Rev Ross Campbell, a deacon who will, please God, be ordained to the priesthood next year.

On the Wednesday of the Conference, we usually have a number of visitors, especially families with their young children. It was great to catch up yesterday with a number of friends who themselves came on these conferences when younger and now bring along several children who will probably themselves benefit from the conference when they are a little older.

Today we had photo time, with formal group photos of "London", "North East" etc. It was a lovely morning and good for some informal shots too. Here is Bishop O'Donoghue chatting with some of the participants in the conference.
