Alton Webteam: August 2016
It's business as usual at Alton Methodist Church! Arrangements have being made and are ongoing to make sure everything runs smoothly during the coming year.
If you have an urgent pastoral issue, please contact Rev Conrad Hicks (01252 690940).
For all other queries please speak to one of your 4 stewards — Di Wright (01420 86366), Helen Wallace (01420 84689), Debby Bridger (01420 86910) or Lin Fitch (07765 450260). We will help because that is what we want to do! There are discussions ongoing between all of your stewards and with the circuit stewards so please be assured that, despite rumours to the contrary, Alton Methodist Church is going to thrive and although it might be challenging at times, we are a great church with brilliant people to support us all.
However, of course, the most important thing to remember is that God will guide and support us all — let's not be afraid to ask for his guidance through prayer.
