Having welcomed visitors to our parishes from our twin diocese, Thika in Kenya, earlier this year, Bishop Robert is leading a group of nine on a return visit from 18-27 October … you can read his blog here. The group will be joined by a similar sized group from the diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf – the third diocese of our tripartite diocesan link.

Yesterday, a large group of us accepted an invitation from PPT Bovey Tracey to join them for tea before their 5pm service.
PPT and St Michael’s & St Barnabas have been partners in mission for about four years now, and we have shared a number of visits. The aim of our link is to support each other in our very different contexts, and to stand together as witnesses to the gospel as revealed in the Bible.
We received a warm welcome, the tea was spectacular – the cakes were almost as good as at our coffee mornings! We really appreciated Rev Graham’s talk on Genesis 11:1-9, and the sung worship led by members of all ages and from both church families.
We were delighted in turn to invite members of PPT to both our coffee morning and Quiz Night in November … and assured them that they would receive an equally warm welcome.
