Prayer for the week

Circuit staff from September 2022 – part 2!

There have been many conversations and prayers during the last many months after the initial rounds of stationing and we are delighted that Rev Gillian Baalham will become the superintendent of the Circuit from September 2022.

This has meant some adjustments for all the Circuit staff as they seek to walk alongside, and support all of the Circuit churches as the circuit moves to a more active shared ministry.

From September 2022 Rev Gillian Baalham will be the superintendent of the circuit. Alongside our deacon, Jenny Parnell, she will work with the 3 churches: Crawley, Horley and Redhill – both will be extending their current shared ministry. Rev Elisabeth Brooks will continue to work with Reigate, with the equivalent of one day a week at East Grinstead where she will be joined by Rev Billy Slatter as previously announced.

In your prayers do give thanks for God’s inspiration in the hearts of all our staff team.  We would ask you to remember them, the circuit stewards, church leadership teams and church stewards as all adjust to  a new way of working together.~ Circuit Stewards Team

Reminder : Will you join us in the fight against Modern Slavery in Redhill?
In the Autumn we are hosting a course devised by the Clewer Initiative* called “Hidden Voices”.  The aim of the course is to give us a greater understanding of modern slavery, and to end up with a concrete plan for what actions we can take to combat this issue in Redhill.

The course will be held at 7:30pm in St Matthew’s Church, Redhill on the following dates:

      • 27 September 2022
      • 11 October 2022
      • 01 November 2022
      • 15 November 2022
      • 22 November 2022

We would like to invite your church to send up to three members to participate in this initiative and help us to play our part in tackling this problem in our community of Redhill.  Participants will need to be able to meet within their church groups in between course dates and will need to have the desire to take this forward in their own church environment.

Reminder: Safeguarding Course | Thursday 21 July 2022

The next Safeguarding Course will be held at Redhill Methodist Church on the evening of Thursday 21 July. I will contact you directly if your role requires you to attend or if you need to renew your qualification, however, if anyone else would like to attend then please let me know. ~ Diane ().
