Robin and Joan Stockitt bring many years of pastoral, theological and counselling experience with them, drawn from ministry in Nigeria, Northamptonshire, Germany and now Northern Ireland.  They will lead us into the ‘glorious riches’ to be discovered in Paul’s prayer for his fellow Christians and for us who hear it today.

Robin comes with many years of experience as a minister serving in diverse contexts; an urban parish in Northamptonshire, a university city in Germany and now a semi-rural parish in Northern Ireland. Prior to this he was a teacher in England, Nigeria and a high security prison in the Midlands. He has a wealth of experience in pastoral care and teaching that has inspired a number of books and publications. Joan not only comes with a teaching background but has also responded to God’s call to be a counselling practitioner. She will offer us many insights into the human condition set to a background of biblical understanding and study. We look forward to them leading us together.
The theme will be "Rooted and grounded in love”: exploring the depths of Paul’s language in the prayer he prays for the Ephesian church (Ephesians 3).

Please pray for the Festival Events individually and (corporately) in your prayer groups:  pray for Robin & Joan Stockitt, the worship group, all who attend, openness to God's Word, building of faith, equipping for service, continued uniting of God's people, living each day in Jesus' name.
