This Sunday, May 6th, the preacher at our 10.30am service will be the Chair of the Northampton District, Rev. Helen Cameron. Describing the District, Helen said, "We stretch from East Midlands Airport to just before arriving at Heathrow Airport, from just leaving the Cotswolds to just arriving at the Fens. There are particular needs to address in both densely-populated cities and in remote rural communities, there are both areas of affluence and areas of deprivation and poverty, there are also multi-cultural and multi-faith communities in our District as well as communities which are more homogenous. In all this rich diversity we believe God is abundantly present and this is why we continue to bear witness to that presence as we worship in our 260 churches and as we attempt to live out a Christian lifestyle wherever we are day by day."
