Yesterday Rev. Duncan invited the congregations of St Anne's and St Mary's to A Year of Listening and Reflecting in his sermons across the three morning services (8:00, 10:00 and 11:00).

Many of you will have accompanied your children to their Sunday groups and will have missed the opportunity to hear the address. I felt it was important for our families and the Sunday Group volunteers to have access to this invitation and to prayerfully engage with the process over the coming months.

Please take a quiet moment to read the transcript of Rev. Duncan's sermon.

As we pray and reflect together there will be opportunities to discuss and dream about the direction of Children and Youth ministry in relation to the whole Benefice. I look forward to being in conversation with you about the way God is leading us.

With best wishes,
