Rev. Helen Kirk, our Superintendent Minister, has been appointed Chair of the Chester & Stoke District from 1st September 2019. Helen wrote, "Last month I was approached...to consider putting my name forward for the role of a District Chair. Throughout my ministry, I have always believed that part of my calling is to be under the discipline of the church and thus to be willing to be stationed wherever the church sees fit." Last Thursday, Helen was nominated for her new post subject to Methodist Conference approval in June.

She continued, "I will of course continue to be the minister at AMC for the next 18 months and will continue to serve to the best of my ability. I am deeply grateful for all the love and support my family & I have received from the church and my decision to accept this nomination has not been an easy one to make. We have been very happy here and it will be hard when the time comes to leave. However that needs to be balanced by my calling which is to serve the church wherever I am sent. I hope you can appreciate this."

All Helen's 18 churches in the Vale of Aylesbury Circuit were informed yesterday, as were members of the Chester & Stoke Synod.

Aylesbury Methodists will continue to offer Helen and Andrew our love and prayerful support for her remaining 18 months with us and for her future ministry in her new role.
