A word from Rev Bob Kent  

” Thanks for all the many messages and inquiries about my health in  the past few months that have come from St John’s members. To date, the worst is behind me and while progress is slower than my patience likes to cope with, it is nevertheless real for which I am grateful. It has been good to be home now since the beginning of November. Thanks again for all your assurances of prayer and good wishes. They have been a fine support. Yours sincerely, Bob Kent”
