"Some of you will know I was in Poole before coming to Woodley and I can recommend Revd David Betts and the folk from St Mary's Longfleet. They were invited by Poole Deanery to run a session on Prayer Ministry for Deanery Synod which was well handled and very sensitive. I think this is likely to be very good and I will be recommending it to folk at St James"
Rev Nick Jackson
Southlake St James', Woodley
