Head of Pastoral and Guest Programme
We are delighted to welcome Richard & Carol Drury to Woodlands House of Prayer. Richard comes as the Head of Pastoral and Guest Programme, whilst Carol will take a lead in the music ministry and also, amongst other things, put her horticultural skills to use in the gardens.
Creation of the role of Head of Pastoral and Guest Programme completes the reorganisation of the structure, which was started early last year and has seen the appointment of the Head of Estates (Rachel), and of Hospitality (Philippa). We see the establishment of this strong management structure as being essential in the development of the Woodlands House of Prayer and securing its long term future.
Richards role is particularly important as we seek to develop further the spiritual heartbeat of the Woodlands House of Prayer, with the name of the organisation being much more than just a name, but of prayer becoming more of the core of who and what we are. The guest programme is a key part of the outworking of the spiritual life and we look forward to seeing The Lord continue to work in the lives of people who come, with yet more of the wonderful healing and transformations which we have seen over the years as we are faithful to Him.
We thank God for His amazing provision.
Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen. Eph3:20-21
