Moving On...

Home » News » Moving On...

At the end of the month, our longest serving member of ministerial staff will be moving on... After 14 years serving in both the Andover Circuit and, more recently, the Kennet & Test Valley Circuit, Deacon Shirley is retiring and moving to Wiltshire.

Deacon Shirley has offered a unique contribution to the ministry team across the Circuits through her calling as a Deacon, rather than as a Presbyter. On July 23rd, we shall be celebrating Shirley's commitment to the Rule of Life as practised by the Methodist Diaconal Order, with its commitment to service, pastoral care and the equipping of God's people for service to the world and also the significant contribution to Circuit life made by her husband, Bob.
