Preachers accredited at Circuit service

Recognition service

Frederick Obeng and Esther Miller were both warmly welcomed as fully accredited Local Preachers at an inspiring Circuit service on Sunday 19th November at Didcot. A letter of welcome from the President of Conference was read out, and they were each presented with a commemoration Bible. Both thanked all those who had supported them through the training process.

Rev. Keith Underhill spoke of the common reaction to hearing a call from God, "Who am I?" and reminded us that God's call sometimes comes to those who feel themselves unsuitable for the task!

Daphne Savage, who arrived in Wallingford recently with long experience of preaching in the United Reformed Church, was also welcomed as a Methodist local preacher, and spoke warmly of the role played by those who welcome people across the threshold of a new church. A welcome was also extended to Andrew Dixon, a local preacher who joined us in the summer from Bristol, and who read one of the lessons.

All four of these preachers will be taking appointments throughout the Circuit on the forthcoming plan.

Wantage first started "Toilet Twinning" in November 2014 and it is good to see how successful the scheme has been with so little effort and the generosity of members and friends. Each toilet costs £63 and in addition to purchasing toilets...
