Revd Gina Hoff's Ordination into full ministry

Home » News » Revd Gina Hoff's Ordination into full ministry

You may be aware that Rev. Gina Hoff will be ordained at the Methodist Conference and that it is being held in Birmingham, on Sunday 25th June. It is possible that we can support Gina on this very special occasion but to do so we will need to organise tickets for the ceremony. These tickets will be provided on a first come first served basis on the 27th March so I am seeking information from the churches in the Circuit as to how many people would wish to attend. I will need accurate numbers by the 10th March as Jenny and I will be on holiday from the 13th March until 25th March. I would also very much appreciate an indication of numbers as soon as possible, including a nil return, so that I can organise a coach should the numbers be great enough. It would also be helpful to know from those who wish to attend if you are prepared to use your car and to fill all the seats, or if you will need a seat in someone's car if that is the mode of transport we choose to use. Gina's Testimony Service, within our District, will be held on Tuesday 9th May at 7.30 pm at East Grinstead Methodist Church and it would be good if we could support her here too. I would appreciate knowing the numbers of people interested in attending this service also, for the same reasons as above.
Revd. Alan Costello

It was a glorious day for the Year 8 Young Venturers' expedition — clear skies and the temperature climbing to 26 degrees!The three girls and four boys set off from Holybourne, and almost immediately discovered how easy it is to get mislaid even when close to home! However, they soon passed Wyck and continued, although not without further excitements, to Binsted, where they enjoyed an early...
