CHRISTIANS from across the Kent Estuary area met at M:Hub to discuss Gossiping the Gospel.

This was the third evening of its type, organised by the Kent Estuary Mission Community. It was led by Bishop Geoff Pearson, retired Bishop of Lancaster, and his wife Jean.

They led several sessions interspersed with discussion groups. These talked about questions which had been set by Geoff and Jean.

Their aim was to have conversations on how church communities can reach out to those around and in so doing to grow in faith.
