Time Out With God By Jenny Edwards M.B.E Our Mission Quotes are sometimes edited for clarity and length This year a small group of us went to High Leigh conference centre for our weekend spending time with God, and looking at the theme ‘I am a child of God’. With lots of laughter and chatter mixed in, we had some lovely fellowship together, and many people saw answers to prayer as we sought to pray with each other and seek God’s will for our lives. We even had Ollie, an assistance dog, to pat and accompany us on this journey. Ollie saw that nothing that was dropped on the floor stayed there long, much to the delight of us all. Vital Link is designed and printed by PDC Design & Print This year we had just one night’s stay, but shall be spending two nights next year at High Leigh, and we would love you to join us in 2019, on August Bank Holiday (23rd – 25th August), for another special weekend of ‘Time Out With God’.
