On Sunday Mike Royal will be speaking at our 9am and 11am meetings in Bracknell, and at 10am in Sandhurst. Mike is the National Director of TLG, an award-winning charity which enables churches to work with children and young people at risk of exclusion from school across the UK. He is also an ambassador for The Cinnamon Network, which helps local churches to help people most at need in their local community. If you like your preachers to be well read then you'll be pleased to know that Mike has a first class honours degree in Urban Planning and a Masters Degree in Black Theology from the University of Birmingham! Mike was also elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2010 (FRSA). He lives in Birmingham UK and has been happily married to Viviene for over twenty years.
Kerith partners with TLG in our Early Intervention work - go to our web page and contact Catherine Felgate who heads up this work if you'd like to find out more. We have also worked with and benefitted from the work of The Cinnamon Network in developing our social justice ministries. Mike is an excellent communicator and I know we're really going to enjoy having him with us.
At the 6pm our very own Liam Parker will be speaking. If you're free why not come out twice on Sunday and get a double dose of goodness :)
I won't be around in the morning as I'm running (walking, crawling) the Reading Half Marathon, joining with a team raising money for Novo, a charity set up to help recovering addicts in Bolivia. Some of the teams are running in sloth outfits, I'm ashamed to report that I'll just be wearing standard running gear which may explain why so far I've got no sponsors! If you want to see who is running and choose someone to sponsor have a look here.
I hope to be around in the evening, assuming I can still walk :)
