This month's Missionary Focus is Chab Dai.

Chab Dai was setup in 2005 by Helen Sworn with the purpose of getting Christian agencies collaborating in their work surrounding trafficking and sexual exploitation in Cambodia.

Christ Church member Andy Page visited Helen and the team at their Chab Dai conference in May and has reported back to the church on his visit.  A copy of his presentation with links to the video clips is available here.

As I watched the 60 or more cold, wet and windswept parishioners arriving for the APCM, I was reminded of the old advert in which milkmen struggle through storms to deliver our doorstep pinta.  And our dedicated band of church members weren’t even being paid to come!  Inside the church was lovely and warm, courtesy we learned of a faulty heating control which currently can only be switched on fully or not at all.

We were treated to a whistle-stop tour of all aspects of church life, some familiar, others not:

  • Did you know that Christ Church is now on Facebook and Twitter or that if you put your news and prayer sheet down whilst having coffee after the service, you can read it on the church webpage?
  • Did you realise that three quarters of the 211 people on the electoral roll live outside the parish?  Wherever do they all park their cars?
