MESSAGE FROM THE REVEREND DYLAN TURNER
It has been a privilege to play a part in shaping the transformation of ministry in Rural North West Kent for the past 7 years. We have come a long way together and I am confident that RNWK has a bright future as a Group. I will miss the fellowship and community we are building here. The role to which I’m moving is an exciting and challenging one – not least because these are completely new posts. But I will carry with me the many good experiences we have had in RNWK.
P
lease hold Dylan, Jenny and all of the RNWK community in your prayers as we enter this time of change.
