This coming Sunday (31st May) Stuart Bell will be speaking at all four of our meetings.
Stuart leads ALIVE, a multisite church meeting in Lincoln, Scunthorpe, Grantham, Hykeham, Norwich and Wymondham. He also leads the Ground Level Network of churches, an apostolic network of churches throughout the UK, which also works with networks of churches in the USA and South Africa. Stuart is married to Irene and they have three children and four grandchildren.
That's tells you some of the facts about Stuart, but tell little about him as a person. If you talk to people who know Stuart they'll describe him using words such as humble, wise, consistent, generous hearted, encourager, fun, full of faith and a kingdom builder. He has a remarkable ability to gather together Christians from many different backgrounds and traditions and build trust and confidence between them in an incredibly gentle but confident way.
For me personally he's been one of my greatest encouragers since I started leading in Kerith, and sometimes seems to have far more confidence in me than I have in myself! He and Irene have become great friends to Catrina and me, and I'm really looking forward to more of us getting to know them both.
See you Sunday :)
ps Also just to remind you that Canon Andrew White is with us for the 6pm only on Sunday 7th June. Parking will be in the college.
