News from M:HUB

The Kendal Methodist Circuit has appointed a new ‘local pioneer’ based at M:Hub. Penny Severn will be taking steps to establish a fresh expression of Church over her three year appointment in Milnthorpe.

The ‘Fresh Expressions’ model begins with lots of listening and talking to the community, and lots of prayers! Penny is at the café at M:Hub on Tuesday afternoons from 2 to 4:30, come and have a brew!

We pray for the project every other Monday morning from 9:15 at M:Hub (Next dates are 2nd and 16th July, 6th and 20th August) everyone interested in supporting us please do join us for that.
