Church Anniversary

Home » News » Church Anniversary

This Sunday, 22nd September is our Church Anniversary and the 10.30am morning worship will be led by Rev. Peter Mortlock. Peter was part of a team ministry here back in the 1970s. He is now retired and lives with his wife Margaret in Bristol.

Some 10 years ago, a report to The Methodist Conference expressed its thanks to the Revd Peter Mortlock for his distinguished service to MHA. The report also said that, "Peter was appointed to the Board of Methodist Homes for the Aged (MHA) in 1982, and appointed Chair of the Board in 2001. He led the Board for seven years, through its significant growth and development to meet the changing requirements and expectations of older people. Ensuring the continued provision of the highest levels of care, MHA is now one of the largest and most respected care providers in Britain.

Having also served on the Board of MHA Care Group from its incorporation in 2000, Peter has displayed solid commitment and dedication to the whole organisation for an astonishing 26 years. During this time, he has not only contributed to the strategy of MHA, he has had personal and practical involvement too. Peter was instrumental in establishing MHA's first Live at Home scheme in Lichfield in 1988; and served as the Chair of the Live at Home Monitoring Group for several years. MHA's nationwide Live at Home initiative now serves over 8000 older people."

So it will be good to welcome Peter back to one of his earlier ministerial appointments this Sunday.
