The United Reformed Church is in a period of change. I believe that Mission begins and ends with the local church and so am delighted that here, in Eastern Synod, it is our aim to invest time and money into equipping God's people to be able to meet the challenges of 2011 and beyond with confidence and enthusiasm.

Peter Hurter
Development and Support Officer (north)

www.urcwessex.org.uk

Peter (and Paul Holmes) is available to advise and support churches in their mission. Peter works mainly in the northern part of the Synod and Paul in the southern part. Between them they are able to offer resources (including organising workshops and providing 'hands on' assistance) to churches exploring their mission, and offer a wide range of training programmes for lay preachers, elders and others. They administer the Educating Ministry programme which caters for the training needs of serving ministers. Peter has overall responsibility for mission enabling and Paul for training issues. Both are enthusiastic about the Church and keen to promote Christian education, mission and development in as broad a way as possible.
