During our Outreach Meeting on 13 January, we covered several aspects of our church’s outreach, including a discussion on equality.  In addition to activities mentioned elsewhere in the Magazine, here are some of the key points about our discussion.

Equality – part of our discussion looked at our church and whether there was more we could do for those visiting our buildings. Several ideas were offered which would help people of differing disabilities, if you have a suggestion please let me know.

For the theme for the second quarter of 2021, we agreed to look at the work of the Leprosy Mission. Our service on 18 April 2021 will be led by Chris Stratta, Regional Manager London and the South East of The Leprosy Mission. 

Whether we will be able to hold this service by Zoom or at Abbey URC remains to be seen.  Just in case we can meet Chris in person, it would be great to give him a large parcel of used stamps, or send it to him before the service if it is held by Zoom.  So please continue to keep your used postage stamps.  Much of The Leprosy Mission funds are raised through selling used postage stamps to avid stamp collectors, so please continue to collect your used postage stamps for this special occasion.
