Introduction from Rev. Andy Rider – Director of Chaplaincy Services

Welcome to this edition of Breakout. We are delighted to announce that just before Christmas Bishop Rachel Treweek – the Bishop of Gloucester and the Bishop for prisons – accepted our invitation to become a patron of Langley. We look forward to hearing from her in our next edition of Breakout.

For those who don’t know me, I am the Director of Chaplaincy Services, which involves overseeing our Chaplains, growing local church engagement and ensuring we engage widely to develop our national profile. I have been with Langley for over 20 years, firstly as a volunteer and in this role since 2020; it’s a great job, which I do alongside working as an Anglican priest in East London.

You will notice some changes as we move this spring to three seasonal editions of Breakout per year alongside our Prayer Diaries, which will include elements of the same theme. We hope they inform and inspire you to lean into us with your support for our work. Whether you pray for us weekly or lead a Langley prayer group at church. Whether you are a regular giver, or have included us in your will, we are so grateful to you. Your unseen support is visible to God, and we know it makes a huge difference to the clients we work with. So, a huge thank you from me on behalf of Langley.

This edition and the accompanying Prayer Diary look at our value of being genuine. Our primary value is to build a Christlike culture, mirroring Jesus in our 4 other values: being visionary, responsible, respectful and genuine.

I hope you enjoy this Breakout – do email us your feedback.
