Entitled. 'Called By Christ To Be Disciples' this service was a tribute to the different ministries of four people. Rev. Irena Byron and Rev. Stephen Watts have been called to be disciples in pastures new, whilst Rev. Jim Gorringe and local preacher Desmond Ffoulkes were retiring. Each of them gave their reflections on their time in the Circuit and will feature in subsequent postings on this website.
The service, organised by Rev. Helen Kirk, included congregational hymn singing led by the Circuit and Youth Choirs, together with friends from other local choirs, accompanied by Derrick Matthews on the organ.
After thanking the four individuals for their own contributions to the life and worship of the Vale of Aylesbury Circuit, Helen pointed out that, "We are all called by Christ to be disciples . The call can feel a very big ask but we can know and trust the presence of God with us." She also used a story about the question we should all ask ourselves each day, namely, "What is my job on the planet today?"
