New Challenges Ahead

As many of you know, my husband and I have been looking to downsize for some time, and have found a house in Abbot's Worthy (NE edge of Winchester) that fits the bill, so I will be leaving you as I need to find a church near there to worship at.

23 years ago I arrived here with 2 young children. I was quite shy and reserved, and happy to attend worship, with my only involvement otherwise being occasionally doing a bible reading.

However, over the years I have become involved in different aspects of church life as a result of your fellowship, encouragement and patience! Many of you have become close friends, walking alongside me, sometimes taking a step back to gently push me forwards. (I could quite easily even now just hide behind my music stand otherwise!) Being involved in house-groups and the worship band has been a particular joy to me, but even that has not always been easy, and needed to be worked at, so thank you all for persevering with me.
I will miss you, and will endeavour to stay in touch, and look forward to hearing how you are doing especially when Revd Simpkins arrives in September. Having said that I am ready for new challenges, I am having a few wobbly moments about all this now, but I know that your thoughts will be with me over the transition period as we settle in to our new home,

With all my love to you all,
Sheila
