Circuit Welcome & Thanksgiving Service
On Saturday 2nd September at 4pm we held a special service at Helsby Methodist Church to welcome the new Presbyter ( Minister) Rev'd David Bintliff, his wife Gemma and daughter Charis to our Circuit. Rev'd David will have pastoral responsibility for Helsby, Kingsley Hurst and Kingsley Blakelees churches and we look forward to working with him.
The well attended service was led by our Superintendent Minister, Rev'd Neil Stacey and the Chair of District, Rev'd Peter Barber preached a sermon of welcome and encouragement.
The service was also a way of saying a heartfelt 'Thank You' to Rev'd Anne Gibson and Rev'd Ian Rigby for their work in Kingsley and Rev'd Christine Jones for her work in Helsby: the three Supernumerary Presbyters who have been working in this section for the past twelve months . Their help and guidance has been very much appreciated.
