In August, Rev. Irena Byron will be leaving us for a job with a very long title. She will become the Methodist Superintendent and co-leader of the Central Sussex United Area of Methodist and United Reformed Churches! Their website is shorter — www.csua.org.uk. Based in Haywards Heath, Irena's new ministry will consist of churches which are Methodist, URC or a combination of both and some which are also linked with the Anglican and Baptist denomination. They came together in 2007 to pool resources and support each other in their work.
At the Songs of Praise service, Irena said that she felt, "Blessed so many times for listening to God. He called me to the Vale of Aylesbury and I give thanks. The experience has changed me and therefore helped me to grow in the Lord." She gave thanks for the people that had helped to change her and hoped that we too had changed. "I feel enriched by my stay here" Our Superintendent Minister Rev. Helen Kirk thanked Irena for her contributions to the Circuit and said that she left with our love and prayers.

Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. 3 But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and...

Pete Honeyball: Thu 10 Jun 5:00am

Love is Pete's theme with this beautiful chapter of 1 Corinthians 13.Love Is Indispensable1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all...
