Coming together in Bedale
It was a huge joy and privilege for me to share in worship at Bedale Methodist Church in Yorkshire, with my special friends Rev Kathleen Wood and Rev David Wood, on 23 August. The Emmaus Road was our theme as we celebrated the rich heritage of the three churches of Aiskew, Bedale and Crakehall, looked forward to a new future together as Bedale and District Methodist Church.
I am praying for them all this Sunday 6 September, as they hold their first service as a new church.
It was an added joy to see the Circuit Superintendent Rev Ruth Parry and her husband John at the service. Ruth and I first met at a post-natal clinic in Cambridge a few years ago!!
