Stationing Update

Home » News » Stationing Update

The Circuit is pleased to announce that, after visiting the Circuit last weekend, Rev Philip Simpkins has accepted an invitation to join the Circuit staff team next summer. Philip will have particular pastoral responsibility for the churches at Alton, Hale and Rowledge. Philip and his wife Angela are currently living between Bristol and Bath where Philip is the Minister at Keynsham Methodist Church. They will move to our Circuit in August of this year. This means that both of the vacancies in our Circuit for 2017 have now been filled. In a time of significant shortages in Ministers available to stationed each year, we are thankful to God for these appointments and grateful to the Rev John Hellyer, our District Chair, to the Circuit and Church Stewards involved and to all the members of the Circuit invitation Committee for their careful and prayerful commitment to this process. Rev Chris Blake: Circuit Superintendent / Sally Press: Senior Circuit Steward.
