There will be an opportunity to invite your friends to experience 'Church' in a different way when Archbishop Justin visits the Diocese from 7 – 9 October.  Events will be planned in Worcester, Dudley and elsewhere in the Diocese focussed around our Kingdom People vision and also the Archbishop’s priorities of reconciliation, prayer and evangelism. On the Friday evening in Worcester Arena we’re planning a big ‘in conversation’ event where Archbishop Justin will be interviewed about his life and his ministry. It will be entertaining and engaging as well as thought provoking and evangelistic. We’ve got 1600 seats to fill, so please put it in your diary now and start thinking of those outside the church who might want to come to see the Archbishop speak. Clergy and Readers will want to be present in the Cathedral on Saturday for a 'retreat in daily life'. The morning will be focussed around prayer with input from Mucknell Abbey and Glasshampton as well as Archbishop Justin. And there are events on the theme of reconciliation being planned in Dudley.

The ‘winning’ prayers in the schools’ entries in ‘A Prayer for Prayer’ to celebrate the Archbishop’s visit
Dear Lord, thank you for giving us the ability to pray for ourselves and others. Sorry that sometimes we don’t make room to pray in our lives, so please please help us to pray more regularly.  We ask you Lord to keep listening and sticking with us.                 Amen   Natalie Parsons. aged 10   St James CE Primary, Wollaston
Let me take the light of your love forth into the world, O Lord, and shine it into the darkness of sin. Let me show to the people whose lives are enshrouded in the midst of uncertainty and despair, the loving friendship that Jesus Christ your Son showed to us in the brief time he spent on this earth before ascending to join you at his glorious resurrection. Let me learn to trust you with all my heart and teach others to do the same. Teach me to be accepting but at the same time to know, say and do what is right and what is your biding. Remind me that fear need not be mine as you will always stand by my shoulder and advise me of how to live; protect me from harm that may come by me, and encircle me with your ever forgiving love.   Please keep us, the sheep of the good shepherd, to the straight and true path that leads to your kingdom of eternal joy. Through the meanders of life lead us Lord, and guide us past the temptation of evil. Though the road may be hard and at times may be bleak, keep us striving Father, striving towards the very glowing core of your greatness. Amen   Olive Rowe  aged 10  Pendock CE Primary
