NYD Webteam: September 2016
On Saturday 10 September at the Darlington District Synod Rev Janet Park presented a banner to Debs Coggrove who is the District link to Miathene Synod in Kenya. The banner was created by a group of people collectively known as TOTs, 'Talent On Tuesdays', who meet at Bainbridge regularly and it is to be presented to the people of Miathene Synod. The banner is a combination of embroidery and fabric collage and depicts seasonal scenes of Wensleydale.
There are usually a number of gifts from Miathene on the stage when Darlington District Synod meets and they serve to remind us of the work that goes on there. This banner will I'm sure be much appreciated by the community there and help build stronger links between us.
The purpose of this partnership with Miathene Synod is to encourage, support and learn from each other in our mission and ministry as members of the body of Christ in God's kingdom. Miathene Synod has a total of 152 churches and is under Meru County, covering Tigania East, Tigania West and Isiolo. It also has a mission in Mwamba.

During our first lockdown we had pictures in the papers, on TV and social media of our local towns and cities deserted, streets empty of litter, the air became clearer with lack of car and air pollution, people could hear the bird song, stories of people hearing the dawn chorus for the first time in inner cities, the ability to see miles. Creation reclaimed some of its natural order and we were...
