Covenant Groups – A few members have been discussing setting up a local ‘Covenant Group’ and meeting regularly in members’ homes. Catherine Florin and Haley Glennie-Smith have met to discuss setting one up in their local area (N10, N8, N22, etc..) and would love to hear from anyone who is interested in joining them. We envisage meeting every two/three weeks to share our joys and concerns, get to know each other better and strengthen our community ties. If you are interested, or would like some more information please contact us on  catherine.florin[at]btinternet.com or haleyglenniesmith[at]mac.com
