I am pleased to be able to share the news that (subject to final confirmation at the Methodist Conference in July) the Rev'd. Andrew Emison will take up an appointment in the Chester and Delamere Forest Circuit, beginning in September, with particular responsibility for Frodsham, Oakmere, and Bunbury and Tiverton. Andrew’s wife, Naomi, is a primary school teacher. Along with their two children, Matthew and Sophie, they will be moving into the Fairways manse in August. Andrew is currently serving on the Isle of Man. No doubt in due course Andrew will introduce himself and the family. In times when there continue to be shortages of Methodist presbyters (this year there will be around 40 appointments not filled, including our Helsby and Kingsley appointment) we are thrilled that a minister so highly regarded as Andrew has been appointed to the circuit.
Please pray for the Emison family as they prepare to join us; and for all those who are working hard behind the scenes to help our fellowship and mission in Frodsham to grow.
A circuit welcome service for Andrew will be held at Frodsham Methodist Church on the evening of Tuesday 30th August at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome to come, and to enjoy refreshments afterwards.
Yours in Christ,
Written by the Minister & Members
