Ichthus Newsletter Spring 2018

Resources. Training. Grants. ICHTHUS - SPRING 2018 A message from our CEO Just before Christmas the Trustees appointed me as the new Chief Executive of LWPT. Having been with the charity for just over two years, I am delighted to take on this responsibility and look forward to developing all the work that we do to support and provide resources for those that preach. There have been a number of changes including the departure of Adrian Needham, Executive Officer, Jo Swinney, Preach Editor, Nafisa Mantel, Marketing Executive and Shayne Hall, Finance Manager. I’m sure that you will join with me in thanking them all for their individual efforts in helping LWPT to flourish. With these farewells, we also have a number of welcomes. We celebrate three new staff members joining the team: Louisa Lockwood, Preach Editor, Rochelle Owusu- Antwi, Communications Manager and Shenara Abraham, Membership Officer. All three bring a wealth of professional experience to LWPT and with different church backgrounds means that we are becoming a truly ecumenical team which is absolutely wonderful. Please pray for the new team as we endeavour to work together to deliver the objectives of the charity. Finally, a huge thank you to all those that were able to contribute to the Winter appeal. The total raised so far is just under £2,000 and we are still receiving donations, which is fantastic and greatly appreciated.
