Alton Webteam: November 2016
The Circuit is pleased to announce that, after visiting the Circuit last weekend, Rev Billy Slatter has accepted an invitation to join the Circuit staff team next summer. Billy will have particular pastoral responsibility for the churches at Fleet and Hartley Wintney.
Billy and his wife Pauline have been in Jersey for the last 12 years and will move to the Circuit in August 2017.
The Circuit also had a visit from a Minister who had been linked by the Stationing Matching Group with the Alton, Hale and Rowledge section of the Circuit. Those who met the Minister recognised many gifts and graces in that Minister, but did not feel that there was a good match with the work in those churches and so did not offer an invitation to that Minister.
The second round of Stationing takes place at the very end of this month and into December. Your prayers for the Circuit Invitation Committee and all involved are much appreciated at this time.
Rev Christopher Blake
Minister North Camp Methodist Church
Superintendent Minister for the Hants-Surrey Border Circuit
