This Sunday evening's 6.00pm service will be Helen Kirk's last one as our Minister and Superintendent Minister of the Vale of Aylesbury Circuit.. She has already started packing in readiness to move back up north to Crewe, where she will become Chair of the Chester and Stoke-on-Trent District.
In her new role, Helen will be providing leadership to the 11 Circuits that make up the District. She will also be a member of the Connexional Leaders' Forum with an oversight of the whole Methodist Connexion. Whilst we are desperately sorry to lose her after five years here, we are pleased that she is going back to lots of friends, having worked in various parts of her new District before she came here.
So we invite you to join us this Sunday evening, July 14th, at 6pm for an act of worship and thanksgiving for all that both Helen and her husband Andrew have contributed to our church life in their time with us.

Is it time to update our Christian CV, as there is the danger that the new...
