Dispatch from a Lambeth Conference steward

“We Lambeth Conference stewards are a team of 48 young people, aged 18-35, from 22 different countries, with very different cultural and theological backgrounds and life experiences. Despite these differences everyone in the team treats each other with care and dignity, and openly hears others’ perspectives on difficult issues, working together to understand each other,” says Eleanor Reid from Community of The Way and The Parish of St Lucia

Ministering to people living and working in aged care homes

“Recently a resident from one of the local aged care homes joined the Kenmore congregation for regular Sunday worship and weekly Bible study. She catches the bus in her wheelchair, gets out at Kenmore Village, and motors down to Holy Spirit Anglican Church. She has brought great insights to us about the needs of aged care residents and of the extremely difficult staff conditions in the COVID-19 environment,” says The Rev’d Jan Crombie from The Parish of Kenmore Brookfield
