I have been away for a week stewarding for the new ECG event at the Conference Centre in Llandudno about which I hope to be blogging soon. Meanwhile, you can find the comments of our President, Martyn Atkins, on the short time that he was with us on his blog www.methodist-presandvp.blogspot.com . I'm disappointed that so far there has been only one comment there.
Those of us stewards who returned home on Sunday afternoon were encouragd by this email from the stewards' team leader, John Cass:-
"After you had gone we had another great Celebration for the local folk from the Llandudno Area, an area stretching from Holyhead to Wolverhampton and Liverpool, so not that local! The stalls were so full that we had to open the circle as well. Clive Calver preached, YFriday led worship and many responded to Salvation and a personal commitment to growth. There is a real possibility that many of those who attended may return for the week next year.
Next year we are going to need twice as many stewards as this year so when the volunteer forms appear please encourage your friends to volunteer. The record is 8 additional volunteers recruited, currently held by Kath."
We also heard in another email that 475 people had already signed up for next year!
