2 special services to say farewell to the Stamford & Rutland Circuit and commission the ‘New Circuit’:

Sunday 16th July 2017 6pm Ryhall Methodist Church

Sunday 3rd September 2017 Circuit service to commission the ‘New Circuit’ Time and venue to be announced.

 I am delighted to inform friends around the circuit that the Lincolnshire District Synod meeting on Saturday 17th September formally agreed to the merger of the Stamford & Lincolnshire Circuit with the South Lincolnshire Circuit. The merger now needs ratification from the Methodist Council and the Methodist Conference of 2017 – I will be there in person to make sure it does!! We can now look forward to a shared future of exciting mission and ministry as we work together as sisters and brothers in Christ to make God’s love known in the communities we serve.  We aim to merge in September 2017. We have 2 special services which I trust will be well attended as we say farewell to the Stamford & Rutland Circuit and commission the ‘New Circuit’: Sunday 16th July 2017 6pm Ryhall Methodist Church A service to thank God for the life and witness of the Stamford & Rutland Circuit Preacher: Rev Brian Lewis Brian was the Superintendent Minister when the circuit came into being and it is right and proper that he should preach at its final Circuit Service. We will also commission Rev (Major) Roy Burley for Circuit ministry as he leaves Army Chaplaincy following 15 years of service. Sunday 3rd September 2017 Circuit service to commission the ‘New Circuit’ Time and venue to be announced. Preacher: Rev Gareth Powell, Secretary of the Methodist Conference  Andy

"The Connexion"

New Methodist Church magazine

    The Methodist Church are publishing a new magazine "The Connexion", and for the next issue they are asking for stories about use of "The Arts" in Mission.  The crucial part of the theme is "in mission" because they want to highlight where the creative energy within churches and circuits is winning people for Christ; whether through fine art, music, drama or something else.  Revd. Andy Fyall will forward any contributions.
