Revd Alison Richardson has written a report on her visit to Cuttack, India:

I am thrilled to report that our District Chairman, Rev  Graham Thompson, and the Synod Secretary, David  Clitheroe joined us for one week.  They travelled over the whole Diocese to gain as much information as possible with a view of establishing more church partnerships, and exchange visits in the future. There is much work to be done on both, but early signs are good.

I was fortunate to visit Puri and Pentakota again in January, with my dear friend Rev Debbie Kirk. It is always tough travelling so far, and as cheaply as possible, but always worth the effort and the expense. We have never visited without being truly blessed in many ways.

We are always made very welcome and stay with our dear friends Rev Surrendra and Bulbal Mohanty so I will start the update with them.

A DAY OF PRAYER AND FASTING - Friday 1st September 1st 2017

Friends,

The Methodist Conference meeting at Birmingham earlier this year agreed for there to be a day of prayer and fasting for the life and mission of the Methodist Church; seeking God's guidance and the Holy Spirit's inspiration to lead the Methodist Church into the better service of Christ Jesus.

If you are able to fast that day, but not if there are good medical grounds for you not so doing, then please join in this simple act of devotion. You may also wish to pray for the life and mission of your church and to seek God's guidance on what God is requiring of your church. You may wish too, to pray for ministers and church leaders, for preachers and worship leaders; for those who work with young people and those who offer pastoral care. There is no prescribed requirements, but pray fervently for God's guidance for the Methodist Church.

Every blessing,
Simon.

Revd Simon H Leigh
Superintendent Minister
