To all at Leyland Methodist Church,
A massive THANK YOU to you all for the large number of cards and messages received during the last few days of ministry at LMC. lt has been so wonderfulto read all the kind words written, and messages received. Very humbling and encouraging.
We also want to thank you for the gifts which people have given – especially the large amount of money (f 1,150) which you kindly collected for us. As a family, we are considering how best to use this money to provide long-lasting memories of our dear friends, sisters and brothers in Christ. We look forward to letting you know how the money has been used to bless us.
Thank you, too, for the wonderful farewell events -the big party in June – with contributions from so many – and for many treasured memories of the last fifteen years of ministry together at LMC. On that evening, I was presented with a wonderful ‘Ribble Valley Wood’craft’ cross, and a Liverpool shirt and framed picture. All lovely gifts. Thank you so much.
We truly thank God for the time we’ve shared, and I look forward to serving across the Circuit in the new role of Superintendent for the next three years.
You can be sure that we’ll be following with great interest how things progress over the coming years, and I know you’ll take Rev’d Gill, Robert and Luciana to your hearts in the months and years ahead.
Once again, with heart felt thanks, love and prayers,
Rev’d Phil, Maria, Jemma and Jonny
