Growing faith in Leeds

It was good to celebrate a combined total of 70 years preaching at a Circuit Service at Roundhay in Leeds North East.
Florence Doku was presented with her 20 year Certificate - her father was a former Vice-President of the Ghana Methodist Conference - and Peter Harper had clocked up an impressive half-century.
The Circuit Worship Group had put much thought into the theme of the service - Growing Faith - and involved a number of members in choosing hymns and reading lessons. We heard about a successful house group which had helped many people learn more about the basics of their faith; the Superintendent Minister, Jane Craske (pictured with local minister John McNeill), introduced the service and led some of the prayers.
I was delighted to be looked after by Susan and Peter Howdle - both distinguished predecessors of mine and members at Roundhay.
