CMF was founded in 1949 so this is our 60th anniversary year, and it would be great to mark this by increasing the membership. All graduates will soon get a wide-ranging letter from General Secretary Peter Saunders which includes two copies of an attractive new brochure so you can introduce CMF to colleagues (students will get their copies a few weeks' later). The letter also contains information and a booking form for the national doctors' conference on 24-26 April.
National students' conference 13-15 February
is only 2 weeks away now. The early bird reduction has been extended for online bookings until 9am on Monday 2 February so students, book now. Please pray for the 400 we expect.
Head of student ministries
Peter Saunders' letter describes the interim arrangements but we are still looking for a medic to start full time or part time from September. Please pray and make known the need.
