Francis Nabieu

Dear friends

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that the Rev Francis Nabieu has been killed in a car accident whilst in Sierra Leone. We do not have many more details.

Please keep his family and friends in your personal prayers as we will in our prayers in church on Sunday.

As we share in our shock and sadness at the loss of our dear brother, Francis, the Staff Team want to offer an opportunity for people to come together, to pray and remember.

We are therefore holding a gathering on Tuesday 17th May at 10am at New Earswick Methodist Church. We will worship, give an open space to remember Francis and pray together. This time will conclude with refreshments.

We are also going to partner with the Croydon Circuit, where Francis has been in ministry since last summer, in putting together a Book for Remembrance. There will be sheets of paper available at New Earswick next Tuesday and then for a time in our Circuit Office for people to write a prayer, tribute or thought.

Once people have had opportunity to offer a contribution we will send these to our friends in Croydon who are going to combine with what they collect there and arrange for them all to be bound.

Thank you for all your prayers as we support the family, his churches and one other.

With all good wishes

Leslie Newton
Superintendent, York Methodist Circuit
