From Bishop Cam Venables
(Bishop of the Western Region in the Diocese of Brisbane)

Dear friends

I'm looking forward to this year's Western Region Lay Conference and have no doubt that God will use this time to encourage and equip many people.

We will have three keynote sessions on Prayer, Evangelism and Serving ... and electives that will develop skills and awareness in a range of ministry areas. These include Welcoming, Small Groups, Growing Ministry with Children, Music Ministry, Pastoral Care, Funerals and how to run Introductory Courses in Christianity.

So if you are an LA, Parish Councillor, Bible Study Group Leader, Sunday School teacher, musician or just someone in a congregation who would like to learn more about lay ministry ... please come!

I look forward to seeing you in August!

Yours in Christ
+ Cam
