Recently, one of our supporters, David Post – also known as the Cycling Vicar for his fundraising efforts – visited St George’s Church in Baghdad. Since returning he is giving a series of talks to share about his visit and the work of FRRME. Here is what David has to say:

“Following my visit to St. George’s Church in Baghdad in October 2013, I have been planning a series of cycling/speaking tours for 2014, so that I can share, with as many as possible, what I have seen and experienced of the life, worship and work of this amazing Church and its Vicar, Canon Andrew White. I am hoping to encourage many to commit themselves to support all that is done through Andrew and St. George’s, by regular prayer, and by regular giving to FRRME. Visitors will always be welcome at any of these gatherings.”

The dates for March are as follows:

Tuesday 18th  7.30pm  –  Kirby Misperton Village Hall (North Ryedale Deanery) (north of Malton)

Wednesday 19th 7.30pm  –  Holy Trinity Church, Ripon, North Yorkshire
