Welcome Service

Posted on 2nd September 2017

Christchurch was packed yesterday evening for a service welcoming two new ministers to the Methodist Circuit – Rev Jenny Impey and Rev Edson Dube. The service was led by the new District Chair, Rev Helen Cameron and also marks the amalgamation or the Leicester Trinity and Leicester North Circuits.

clipartThe Methodist connexional year starts in September and this year heralds several changes. The Leicester Trinity Circuit of which we are a part has amalgamated with the Leicester North Circuit, making a new circuit of 20 churches, with six ordained ministers. Two new ministers have joined the Circuit, Rev Jenny Impey and Rev Edson Dube, who will be the superintendent minister and also our minister at Christchurch. We are very much looking forward to his ministry amongst us and also give thanks for the ministry of Rev Fran Rhys over the last three years. Although she will longer be our minister at Christchurch she is still in the circuit, serving other churches.

The service was led by the Chair of the Northampton District, Rev Helen Cameron, who is also new, having just taken up this appointment, and over 200 people turned out for the occasion. All-in-all a very joyous evening.

    P. S. I forgot to say that ‘we’ are Wigston Magna Methodist Church.

    Yesterday, 10th September, we celebrated Harvest with his Communion Service led by our new minister, Rev. Jenny Impey. It was a joyous service, celebrating all the good things we are fortunate enough to enjoy. At the same time, we were reminded of those who are not so fortunate with knitted chicks & eggs on each table. These were relevant, because All We Can were encouraging us to help the people of Zimbabwe by sending money to give the suffering families chickens. This gives them a source of food and the chance to sell eggs, providing them with a small but renewable income. Jenny is like a breath of fresh air and we look forward to her future services with eager anticipation.
