Bishop tastes New Wine
The Bishop of Bedford visited New Wine on 24th July 2017 during their ‘United 2017’ week away equipping local churches.
He said: “Greeted by John Hookway (Vicar of Christ Church Ware), now the local Regional Director for New Wine, I had the welcome opportunity to both experience a taste of New Wine and to catch up with the Network’s priorities. It was great to see so many people, including several groups from our Diocese, enjoying the opportunity to be spiritually fed, to worship and to have fun. Especially heartening was seeing the brilliant children and young people’s provision. I was accompanied for the day by Tricia Humber (Lay Chair of Dunstable who is project managing our Fresh Expressions project). Both of us were encouraged and inspired by the priority given to enable growth in local churches. A long way to go for the day but well worth it!”
