The training course in Bedford came to a successful conclusion in January. Please pray for the courses which started in London and Spain in February.23 We will be holding an away day for staff, volunteers and trustees at the end of March. These give us an opportunity to reflect, to plan and to pray together. Past away days have been of great benefit; please pray that this one will also be beneficial.
