'I am colossally encouraged by the amount of activity that there seems to be around the church at the moment. There's already a huge amount going on, our job is to join in, to give it the nourishment is needs so that it will grow in the right way. I hope you will give thanks to God and get involved!'
Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury.
