Great Success for CABC 9

The ninth Chelmsford Anglican Bible Conference today was, I'm glad to say, a great success. Over 230 people came to the Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford, to hear Paul Perkin speaking on the Servant Songs from Isaiah.

The day began with a welcome from the Bishop of Barking, the Rt Revd David Hawkins, pictured right with his wife. David  welcomed the delegates and affirmed the aim of CABC, to put biblical teaching at the heart of the Diocese of Chelmsford.

Prayer and Praise times were led by Chris Taylor and a team from St Peter's Harold Wood.

This was the largest attendance at CABC since it was launched at the Cathedral nine years ago. The reason for moving to the Baptist Centre, however, was quite simply the ease of the venue, which offers great facilities at a reasonable price!

My personal thanks go to Carolan Casey and all those who helped to make the day run smoothly. We must now look forward to CABC 10 - the last one planned in the present series - when we are welcoming Don Carson to teach on John's Gospel.
