The Revd Paul Bradbury, a pioneering minister based in Poole, is training for the Bournemouth Marathon on Sunday 5 October.

He says, "I’ll be running to raise money for Poole Missional Communities, the charity we started to help the church connect with folk in lots of different contexts in Poole.

"In particular, I’m running to raise money for work:space which is our work in Poole’s workplaces. Over the past four years, we have developed a range of opportunities that we offer to folk in the workplace which aim to serve people. Work is pressurised and often stressful.

"We are engaging with the workplace to offer Christian meditation, courses such as 'The Happiness Course' and 'God @ work' which help people engage with well-being and spirituality at work. We are also facilitating discipleship groups in the workplace which help people connect faith with work and for some provide a place to explore faith.

"We’d love to grow and develop this work; deeper where we already work, and broader into more workplaces. As the miles start to get more challenging, seeing some donations come in will definitely be a motivating factor. I’m aiming to run in less than 4 hours – maybe you’d like to pledge a larger amount based on reaching that target!"
