A MESSAGE FROM OUR MINISTER

Read Hebrews 13 verses 20 – 21God has raised from death our Lord Jesus, who is the great shepherd of the sheep” (Verse 20)

Dear Friends

I write this as my final plan letter to the South Holderness Circuit. As we go our separate ways, the words of the writer to the Hebrews (above) offer us all solid ground in the faith we share and bring us comfort whenever we are facing times of difficulty or challenge. We all move on in the knowledge that He who was raised from the dead cares for us, leads us and guides us in our ongoing journey of faith.

Our shared experiences of the last 6 years remind us that the words above are true. When I came here in 2011, the circuits of Hull East and Withernsea were not united, but conversations were underway for that process to take place. Not only did God guide us through that exercise and bring to birth the South Holderness Circuit, but we have also keenly known his presence with us through various staffing difficulties that have subsequently arisen.

As I write this, we are in the midst of Covenant services, and in that service there is the line that talks of Christ having many services to be done. That is certainly the case within our own circuit and there are clearly challenges ahead and perhaps some uncomfortable decisions to be made.

In the midst of the challenges there are always the positive things that God is doing. Things like; Messy church and prayer group at Sutton, Youth Alpha at Hedon, lunch club at Kingston Wesley, Yell and Natter at Withernsea (now with new hall floor!) the Café at Holderness Road, the development of a new congregation at Bilton Grange and many other initiatives around the circuit that are reaching out to the communities God has called us to serve.

Finally, my thanks go to staff colleagues past and present, to the Circuit stewards – particularly those in post at the time of my arrival and to our circuit administrator – without all of whom my life and ministry would be even more hectic than it is.

May the South Holderness Circuit as a whole continue to know God’s presence and experience the richness of his blessings and depth of his grace and love

Yours in Christ

Peter B
