The URC Christian Aid Christmas Appeal film

christian aid appealThis Christmas the United Reformed Church is supporting Christian Aid's Christmas appeal that is delivering hope to the thousands of women and children in Kenya who suffer everyday in pregnancy and child birth related issues. From providing maternal healthcare in Kenya to ensuring poor communities receive the vital services we take for granted, your gift will help fund Christian Aid's work to eradicate poverty.

Staff at Church House persuaded the URC moderators of General Assembly – the Revd David Grosch-Miller and Mr John Ellis – to join them in making a festive-themed film promoting the campaign. Please watch it, share it, show it in your churches and, most of all, please donate to the appeal – the government is doubling all money received by 6 February. And, watch the film until the end!

On 22 March a meeting of the United Reformed Church’s Mission Council accepted the resignation of Mr Lawrence Moore as Moderator-elect of the United Reformed Church General Assembly 2012-14.

Mr Moore is director of the Windermere training centre and was elected to the role of Moderator of General Assembly in 2010 at the Church’s General Assembly in Loughborough.

The United Reformed Church elects two assembly moderators who serve together for two years, one a minister and the other a lay person.   Church rules specify that a moderator of General Assembly serves until their successor is inducted. As a result Mrs Val Morrison, the current lay moderator, will continue in post until 2014. All existing moderatorial diary commitments and visits will be covered by a serving or past moderator.
