From Rev Dr John Squires
Presbytery Minister - Wellbeing
The Moderator, the Rev. Simon Hansford, has been visiting the Presbytery this week. On Monday, he spent time with a fine gathering of folks from across the Presbytery—25 retired ministers, lay pastors, and deaconesses, with spouses and minister’s widows—over lunch at Wesley Forrest church. The gathering was both an opportunity for the Presbytery to express the gratitude of the church to these faithful people, who have served so diligently and enthusiastically for decades; and to hear some words of encouragement and challenge from the Moderator. Presbytery Ministers Andrew and John, and PRC Chairperson Elizabeth, joined with Presbytery Co-Chair Ross in welcoming the group for the occasion. A good time, it would seem, was had by all!
