We are saddened that Revd. John Scrivens is unable to take up his post here as he is still recovering from a serious accident. Revs. Chris Blake, who is the Superintendent Minister, is overseeing the spiritual well-being of the church (with the support of the other ministers of the circuit). He will preach in Alton at least one Sunday per month in addition to attending as many meetings as feasible for him.

We are delighted to announce that Liz George has now been appointed as a Lay Worker, based at Alton Methodist Church and reporting directly to Chris Blake.

If you have a pastoral issue, please first contact Liz George (01420 88721) who will refer the matter as necessary.

For other queries you are welcome to speak to one of your stewards — Di Wright (01420 86366), Lin Fitch (07765 450260), Helen Wallace (01420 84689 / 07780 673584), Debby Bridger (01420 86910). Alternatively, please contact the church office (01420 82695)
