On Sunday 3rd March 2019 the Circuit celebrated those who lead worship and preach in our churches. Long service certificates were given out to four of our Local Preachers, including Robin Jackson (centre) who has been a Local Preacher for over 50 years.

Robin told the congregation a little about the training he received fifty years ago, and Revd Michael Chester, the Circuit Local Preachers' Secretary, explained how the current training worked.

Revd Keith Albans, Circuit Superintendent Minister, thanked all those who take part in services, whether by preaching, organising and leading worship or by listening and giving feedback, and encouraged everyone to think about how they could take part.

The second part of the service was created by members of the congregation working in groups, and included a dramatised story of the Gospel reading (Luke 9 v28-36), discussion questions and prayers led by a group of people.
