ABC-LP 180x240It was an utter joy for me to attend Connections at Holy Trinity Church, Claygate.  The ministry Pippa Cramer has pioneered here is extraordinary - it's extraordinary for its pastoral reach into the community, extraordinary for its evangelistic impact amongst Seniors and extraordinary in its simplicity.  This is a local church doing what only a local church can do - incarnating the life of Christ in the neighbourhood and seeing his love, life and hope transform lives.  I commend this work to you; it is a model which I hope and pray will be replicated in many parishes across the country.  For any church community seeking to discern what the Spirit might be calling you to do amongst Seniors, I encourage you without hesitation to attend this conference.

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
