Aidan came to Northumbria at the bidding of King Oswald as a pioneer of Christian mission. He walked the land and talked about Christ with everyone he met, above all he loved the people. Over the past year many of us have become more and more inspired by his example. We have come to understand that today, perhaps more than ever, we need to find a new missionary zeal, a fresh energy to share the Good News of the Kingdom of God here in our diocese, our neighbourhoods and communities. We need to support each other in finding God at work amongst us in the daily lives of all we meet. The Companions of Aidan is an embryonic support network, a community of missioners, walking together in the way of Aidan.
If you are intrigued and inspired by the possibilities of discovering more about The Companions of St Aidan, then join us at NCEA Josephine Butler Campus in Ashington on Saturday 24th September 9.30- 1.00pm.
