Focus is the annual gathering of the HTB network of Churches and it all takes place on the Somerley Estate. This year Matthew and Sarah Trick were invited by HTB, as local Church leaders to join the gathering which took place from the 26th-31st July. 

Matthew writes: 

It was really encouraging to see so many Christians worshipping Jesus in the middle of our Benefice. On the Saturday evening Rev Nicky Gumbel spoke about the urgency of sharing Jesus with people who don't know him yet and the task of the church in revealing Jesus to all people. We also got to see 10 new Church plants commissioned including two in our own Diocese. There was a wonderful sense of hope for the Church of England as young people stepped forward as ordained and lay leaders to breath fresh life into Church of England churches.
