On Tuesday 10th May Bishop Damien Mead visited the International Christian Resources Exhibition at Sandown Park, Esher, Surrey.

Credo Care Ltd, the Independent Fostering Agency, of which the Bishop is Co-Founder and Chairman is exhibiting at the annual event seeking to recruit foster carers around the country to care for disabled children and those with complex medical needs. In addition Richard Mulholland, Manager of the Canterbury Church Shop Ltd, accompanied the Bishop and promoted the Shop and established contacts with new suppliers and potential customers.

The Bishop also engaged in many conversations about the ACC and directed interested people to this web site. Commenting upon his attendance the Bishop said "At this time when so many in the media focus on the closure of churches and what appears to be the retreat of Christianity in this country it is always very encouraging to see such enthusiasm and examples of commitment and devotion from Christian individuals and organisations and those who support Churches across the UK and internationally exhibiting their work and raising awareness of the valuable contribution they make in proclaiming the Gospel" He added "It was especially heartening to see the many agencies who seek to help persecuted Christians and raise awareness of their plight around the world".

CRE runs from today until Friday 13th May and details can be obtained from the website below:
