  • Churches together Women's Gala

    date amended re email 19.1.2018 Fiona to ODOn Sat, Oct 21, 2017 at 6:13 PM, SUSAN EGGLESTONE  wrote: Caroline and Fiona, I am a member of the steering committee for a proposed Women's Gala next year, Sunday July 15th 2018 which is the day after the Miners' Gala.  Something else to keep me busy in my retirement!   It is proposed that the event will be held in Wharton Park on the Sunday afternoon and will be an alcohol free, family friendly celebration of the centenary of initial women's suffrage as well as the role of women today!  We are hoping to have some high profile speakers as well as music and games.  Traditionally a Women's Gala was held in the park the day after the main Gala until the 1970s. Although the event will be somewhat political in nature I am the non-political member of the steering committee, which also includes Marion Wilson, Roberta Blackman-Woods and Vera Baird.  The chair is a young local councillor who happens to be a former pupil of mine.   We wondered if the event might conclude with a service of celebration in St Cuthbert's at the end of the afternoon?  We are just at the beginning of the planning and fundraising stage but I wondered what your initial thoughts were?   Many thanks, Susan

Fiona writes:

I join the Durham North Team Ministry with a real sense of anticipation. Both Neil and I are very thankful to God for the way He has led us on our journey thus far and are equally excited about how that will continue alongside you all. I chose the passage from Luke 24:13-35 “The Emmaus Journey” for my licencing service because I felt it identifies many aspects of journeying together that I believe will help shape my ministry with you and hopefully our lives together. Jesus drew near and walked alongside. He enquired and He listened. He encouraged His companions to share their story and enlightened them with stories from scripture. Through this simple building of relationship came the offer of hospitality, connection and ultimately recognition in the breaking of bread.” With joy filled faith, Jesus travelling companions were inspired to carry on and witness to others. My prayer is that for us collectively, the Emmaus story, gives a blueprint that will inspire as we journey together. As this story touches our hearts afresh, may we reach out and invite others to join us along the way. I look forward to sharing in your stories and together telling others the Jesus story, which is after all, the greatest story ever told. "
