Webteam: August 2018
We are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Minister to serve in the Circuit.
Rev Jeongsook Kim officially takes up her post on Saturday 1st September 2018, coming to us after a period in London.
Although she has been appointed in place of Rev Andy Laird who retired in July, she will have pastoral charge of the congregations at Dale Street and at Kenilworth Methodist Churches, the two largest in the Circuit.
This has necessitated a change round of Ministers in the other churches.
Rev Barbara Greenwood will have pastoral responsibility at Warwick, Wellesbourne and Whitnash churches.
Rev Sam McBratney will have part-time responsibility at Radford Road (LEP), shared with the URC minister there — Rev James Church.
Rev Peter Powers will have responsibility for the congregations at Cubbington, Fenny Compton, Kineton, Knightcote, Stockton (LEP) and Tysoe.
Rev Jemima Strain will continue to be Minister with responsibility for missional work in the towns and villages to the south of the Circuit.
There will be a Circuit Service of Welcome for Rev Jeongsook, on Sunday 2nd September starting at 6:00 pm at Kenilworth Methodist Church, preceded by tea and cake at 4:30 pm. All are welcome.
We look forward to working with her and seeing the gifts she brings to the Ministry.
