A belated Happy New Year to all readers. I pray that this is a good year for you and that you continue to develop your Congregational faith in the Lord.

As usual, there is a wide variety of different articles for you to enjoy. Some may be contentious and, if you feel that is the case, please write me a letter/email and tell me your view on the subject. There are many very interesting photographs for you to enjoy too. We give our congratulations to all those who graduated during the last year, especially those who completed the training course within the Federation. It is not easy to study while maintaining a full-time job and contributing to a happy family at home. On top of that, most of our students are also very heavily involved in their local church. They say, if you want something done, give it to a busy person!

May is an important month for the Federation and this year our Annual Assembly will be in Dundee on 11th May. Why not take advantage of this and book yourself a short break in Scotland and include the Assembly as part of your time away from home? Last time we were in Scotland (Dunfermline 2012) everyone had a fantastic time and truly enjoyed the Scottish hospitality. I see no reason why this year’s Assembly in Dundee should be any different. So do book your trip and accommodation early and beat the rush.

At the other end of the country, those who visit Devon or Cornwall for their holiday may wish to call in at Loddiswell Congregational Church. I visited the church last year and received a very warm welcome from the congregation.

Now is the time to be thinking of your articles and letters for the next issue of the magazine, I look forward to receiving them, in this my eighth year as your editor.
