Helen's Last Link

Home » News » Helen's Last Link

I am grateful for the last 5 years that Andrew and I have shared with you all at Aylesbury. For your hospitality, your stories, love, grace, laughter and friendship; for your openness to share your vulnerabilities and willingness to challenge us when we have got things wrong. A shared journey in the presence of God.

And now we now look to start new journeys, as you welcome the Atkinsons and Andrew and I begin a new phase of ministry in the Chester & Stoke District. It is the nature of being God's people that we are always journeying, moving forward together and in the presence of God. So, thank you for sharing this journey with us; it might not always have gone to plan but we have never doubted God's presence, and I can honestly say that we have been changed by your ministry to us. So, thank you!

May God's blessing be realised in our lives as we continue our pilgrimage in his name. (And if you are ever 'up north' we'd love to see you!)

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you,
wherever He may send you.
May He guide you through the wilderness,
protect you through the storm.
May He bring you home rejoicing
at the wonders He has shown you.
May He bring you home rejoicing
once again into our doors.
