It is with deep sadness that the death is announced of former President of the Methodist Conference, the Revd David Gamble.

The Revd Steve Wild, President of the Conference, said "The Revd David Gamble was a great Christian man and a personal friend. He has served his Lord and the Methodist Church in a wonderful way using his gifts to the full. David was a man who relished life and loved every day. He was the only person who could ever make the Standing Orders of the Methodist Church funny and often at Conference would have the assembly in stitches over some minor point in our Constitution. At this time, our love and prayers go to Liz and the family."

The Revd Gareth Powell, Secretary of the Conference commented, "David will be remembered for a wide range of gifts and skills, not least his commitment to making the Church a safer place. David knew God's love and he proclaimed God's love in all of the varied tasks that Methodism required of him. He enriched our connexional life and was a pastor to many. We pray for the peace of David's soul and offer our condolences to his wife Liz while assuring her, and their children, Sam, Sophie and Joe of our prayers."
