Minister Rev Tom Parker
Warmest wishes to everyone in the South Holderness Circuit from all of us at Preston. We were sorry to say goodbye to Rev Colin and Frances earlier in the year. Although he’d only been with us for one year, he soon became aware of our quirks and eccentricities and we worked together very well. However, we are delighted to welcome Rev Tom and Rachel and their lovely children. They have quickly become part of our Methodist Family: we look forward eagerly to his visits, enthusiastic approach and very much appreciate his talents.
After sadly losing three of our valued members earlier in the year, we have been excited to welcome four new worshippers who have recently moved to the village. It is a delight to see them at services.
We celebrated Harvest Festival with a lovely service—Rev Tom’s first—in a beautifully decorated Church together with our friends from the Parish Church. We are very lucky to have such a warm rapport with them and continue to share our services on the second Sunday of each month.
Later in September we enjoyed our Chapel anniversary—one hundred and twenty one years! This year the service was led by Mike Winfield and Val Hoff—followed by a celebratory lunch at the Nag’s Head.
The fellowship and friendship groups continue with some most interesting talks from a variety of speakers. If you would be interested in attending either, please ring Christine.
Finally we send our love and best wishes to all our friends who are suffering in any way. We are thinking of you, wishing you better health, you are always in our prayers!
