In March we were delighted to host Patrick Regan and his team for the “When Faith Gets Shaken Tour” at Encounter Church. It was great to welcome not just local people but some who had travelled from as far away as Dorset and Somerset to attend.

Patrick is the Founder and Chief Executive Director of XLP and you can find out more about them from their website. If you’ve not read Patrick’s book we would encourage you to get hold of a copyPatrick Regan WFGS_v1 (most online booksellers stock it including Amazon). There is such honesty contained within in its pages and Patrick answers some really tough questions about he’s coped when life has thrown one thing after another at him and he feels like God isn’t there anymore. You can also keep up to date with everything that XLP are involved in through their website.

If you have been inspired by what XLP and XLM (Mentoring project) are doing then you may be interested to know that we have our own local youth charity whose offices are located in our church house. WAM Youth (We All Matter)
