South Warwickshire Circuit
Newsletter Number 7
Introducing Miranda Tarrant--Circuit Steward
I am in my second year as a Circuit Steward having started at a busy time with the formation of the South Warwickshire Circuit and the Superintendency Stationing. The past 18 months have been a huge learning curve with challenges but also opportunities to serve, getting to know new people and to see a wider picture of Church life.
I am a member of Dale Street Methodist Church. On moving from Harrogate to Leamington 12 years ago I visited several Churches looking for somewhere to worship with my then young family. The warmest welcome we received was from Dale Street and I have attended there since. There is lots going on at Dale Street but for me belonging to a home group and enjoying fellowship amongst friends is a key part of the week.
I am married with 2 daughters and am a Partner in a firm of Solicitors. When time permits I enjoy baking, catching up with friends and a weekly Zumba class!
