Colin Holland: November 2018
Twenty-five circuit preachers gathered at Privett Street for this autumn's Local Preacher Study Day. The day was led by Dr Glenys Fender from St Anthony's, who spoke on the book of Habakkuk. Following opening devotions, there were two sessions in the morning and then, after a delightful lunch, a third session in the afternoon. Dr Fender brought with her a range of helpful resources, including discounted copies of her most recent book. The preachers left fired with enthusiasm for Habakkuk and looking forward to preparing lots of riveting new sermons.
