I worked with two very different audiences recently, although they were exactly the same people!

On one level, those who came to my storytelling morning were all children's and youth workers from a variety of local churches. Some had a paid post but most were volunteers. They were all responsible in some way for the children's groups on a Sunday morning, running midweek clubs, coordinating the youth work or helping with assemblies at local schools.

At our most recent team meeting, we were humbled and amazed to hear how so many of you have responded to the £100 Messy Church Challenge that we put out at the end of last year. We are so grateful for those who set aside a generous donation to enable BRF's Messy Church team to continue its work of cheering on Messy Churches throughout the world. We already knew what a great Messy community you are out there, but this was the icing on the cake!

I had the privilege of speaking at General Synod at the Church of England last week in response to the (very good) paper on evangelism. I thought I had five minutes but actually only had three minutes, so here's the full whack of what I had hoped to say. Your thoughts? To get the ambiance, you have to picture me trying desperately to look nonchalant as I lurk behind a lectern waiting for my turn to speak to a huge chamber full of very awesome people. Nervous? Moi?

Fascinating developments in Messy Worcester (try saying that without your teeth in). Anyone got any similar stories to share with Alex? Anyone done, for example, a similar thing but with a more science or engineering slant to it? Or do you feel strongly that you'd want to make it all age? Comments welcome.

Dear Lucy

It takes a lot of time to prepare for three days of seminars and workshops at the Hand in Hand Children's and Family Conference at Eastbourne each year, but the effort was made more than worthwhile last weekend. We heard so many stories of how God is at work in our Messy communities.
