Last call for Champions

Setting God's People Free is a Church of England initiative enabling the whole people of God to live out the Good News of Jesus. We are looking for lay champions to help promote lay ministry and discipleship and act as an advocate for lay people. Please speak to Jayne Prestwood if you are interested or even if you have previously expressed an interest. You can read all about the scheme in our leaflet which includes a foreword by Bishop Martin  here
