Tonight nine of our church travelled to Maidenhead for the "launch" of the Reading-Affinity partnership of churches (not sure how many churches are actually involved - maybe 10?).
Will Stileman, vicar of St Marys Maidenhead hosted us, with Graham Cooke of Kennet Valley Free Church preaching from Philippians 1, with contributions from James Muldoon of Carey Baptist Church, and Adrian Reynolds of Yateley Baptist Church.
I'm encouraged to see both Free and Anglican churches entering into partnership - time will tell what God will do through this. Many of the church leaders involved are well known to me through their partnership with Reading University Christian Union which continue to be a source of great encouragement.
Great to catch up with friends, and to meet a few new people in the crowd.
