Revd Dr Iain Ballard

7th November 2021 saw the (belated) welcome service for our Superintendent Minister — Iain Ballard.

At Kenilworth at 4 :00pm, a large number of people gathered to welcome Iain and his family to the Circuit in a formal way. We met in person, but with due regard to Covid risks.

Many people took part in the services — the readings were read by stewards from Kenilworth and Stockton — Iain is the presbyter in charge of these churches. Welcome was given by a Circuit Steward and stewards from Kenilworth and Stockton churches. Other people had the chance to add their welcome to Iain. Rev Ian Howarth gave the word and focussed on the roles and responsibilities of a presbyter. Rachel Hextall took over for the Communion part of the service and we all sang.

Refreshments were served after the service.
