Southern Synod talks of Mission and training

The September meeting of the Synod of the Southern Diocese took place on Saturday 21st September at Christ Church, Harlesden. Delegates were treated to a curry lunch prior to the meeting and fellowship was enjoyed by all.

It was good to hear that many of the Southern churches are focusing on Mission and outreach in various forms. Reports were also heard from the various men currently in training, including a little of their goals once training was completed.

There were also details given of the forthcoming Southern Diocese retreat, taking place during the February half-term, enabling children of the diocese to join the Retreat at a highly subsidised rate.

It was also good to welcome so many visitors who were interested in finding out more about the FCE and were considering working together in the future.


God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you. Fight the good fight of faith, and God will give you spiritual mercies.

George Whitefield

It is also our apostolic mission to enable all our people to develop into effective ambassadors of Christ in the Church and in the world.

Bishop John Fenwick

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham
