South Warwickshire Circuit
Circuit opens with celebration worship
The opening of the South Warwickshire Circuit was marked with celebration worship at Stratford Methodist Church on 8 September, with the congregation spilling into the Wesley Hall.
Chair of the Birmingham District, Rev. Ian Howarth, delivered a sermon focusing on new beginnings and attitudes to change.
The K4 band led worship in song, the Stratford choir sang an introit, and all the circuit ministers took part in the service, which included The Lord's Supper. The collection raised almost £700 for MND, our circuit charity for the year.
