Coming to the Circuit in 2018

We're delighted that through the stationing matching process the Revd Dr Stephen Maunder was matched with our Circuit for September 2018. Stephen will take responsibility for Lime Walk, Rose Hill and Kennington churches.

We're also delighted that the probationers' initial stationing matched us with the Revd Dr Paul Carter. Paul will be working in Kidlington, Woodstock, Tackley and Bladon, also from September 2018.

A Welcome Service for Stephen and Angela Maunder, and for Paul, Carol and Thomas Carter, will be held at Lime Walk on Saturday 1 September, beginning at 3 p.m. Our Chair of District, the Revd Canon Helen D. Cameron, will be the preacher.

Before we welcome the new ministers, we'll be saying farewell to Rosemary and Robert Davies, as Rosemary goes to a new appointment as Superintendent of the Neath & Port Talbot Circuit. The farewell service will take place on Sunday 22 July, at Lime Walk, starting at 4 or 4.30 p.m. (exact time still to be confirmed!).

Meanwhile, Martin Wellings will be on sabbatical from 13 May until 19 August. During that time, Rosemary Davies and Adam Stevenson will be sharing responsibility for Circuit matters. 

There will be a special service which we've been asked to host for Thy Kingdom Come, the prayer initiative started several years ago by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, and now also involving the Methodist Church. This "Beacon event" will be taking place at Wesley Mem on 13 May, at 4 o'clock, led by Revd Jill Marsh, our District Director of Mission.

    Bladon Launches new rooms

    Bladon Junior Church launched the newly finished rooms in October last year, with guests from across the Circuit, District and Connexion and the able assistance of the Youth Presdient, Michael Pryke. Thanks to all who contributed to the £400,00 makeover, and to the Junior Church who entertained us with a stunning excerpt from Matilda.

    Here are some of the 'cast' with Michael, featured on the cover of the Spring edition of Rainbow!
