The festive season is well and truly here. Samaritans Christmas Appeal has kicked off to support families who are doing it tough across the region, while our dedicated volunteers are preparing for another successful lunch on Christmas Day.
We’ve covered the appeal, and the stories behind some of our volunteers, in a Christmas edition of Encounter.
Inside the new-look edition, we’ve also captured an action-packed year at our Anglican Care facilities, shared highlights from a huge 2023 at our four schools, and showcased the latest from some our parishes.
You’ll also find a wrap of Christmas services at Christ Church Cathedral, a special message from Bishop Peter, and plenty more.
