Greetings from the Friends.
The Summer 2016 edition of the Olive Branch is attached. We do trust you will find it interesting, informative and a good read. Do feel free to share the OB and encourage others with links to the UK to support our Diocese by joining the Friends. We would welcome your comments and feedback. Perhaps you will be inspired to write something for the next edition!
Our special thanks go to Ron and Bernice Maitland who came forward to compile this edition, Charles Dodd who proof read and Sally who organised the printing. Our grateful thanks to Julia Lewis who contributed much of the content and without whom we would find it difficult to gather the articles.
We look forward to meeting many of the Friends at the AGM and Celebration Eucharist this coming Monday 1st August at All Hallows by the Tower, London. A small number of printed copies of the Olive Branch will be available there and those who have requested a printed copy by post should receive theirs in a week or so.
We thank you all for your service to our Lord and the churches across our Diocese
