WE are delighted to report that the church magazine has received a Certificate of Excellence and the Silver Award inscribed trophy as runner-up overall in the Association for Church Editors 2015 national awards, for A4- and similar-size church magazines. The judges were very impressed by the layout, content and style, and felt it was a publication of real quality. Our magazine  is very much a team effort, of course, and is dependent on all our contributors (and you, the readers!), so thank you to all. We hope you enjoy this issue, and invite you to submit articles and photographs for future issues. As always, we welcome any feedback you may have – please let us have your views.
