My chair of district (North Lancashire) assumed the office of President of Conference yesterday. He will spend the next year travelling around the connexion and will embody the Methodist Church as our chief representative. I have admired Stephen for the past 4 years as he has not been a ‘hands off’ chair at all. He has been the leader of our ‘Under 5s’ group (for those in their first five years of ministry, not 0-5 year olds), came to see my parents when they have come over, and prayed with April and me when we miscarried three years ago. I can think of no better person to represent the Methodist Church, but we will miss him in the district over the next year.
Hopefully, he will be writing on the blog for the president and vice-president, and anyone will be able to keep up with what he’s doing. Also, here is some information about him:
