Rev. Steve Watts has been inspired to go back into circuit ministry. At last Sunday's Songs of Praise service, he said, "I knew when the call came to go back and un-retire, that it was right. Valerie and I are going to Southend to look after two very active churches and carry on the work already started." He felt revitalised with his five years here and that "I have been head-hunted for the job and God is making it happen."
Rev. Helen Kirk said that, "Steve and Valerie do it as a team." She thanked them for helping out last year in the Amersham circuit and prior to that helping four churches in our circuit in the gap between ministers. "Steve brought us music and puppetry and goes with affection and thanks from us."
His chosen hymn was,
May the mind of Christ my Saviour
Live in me from day to day,
By His love and pow'r controlling
All I do and say.
