Our Churchwardens led us on the morning of Sunday February 10th in giving thanks for the ministries of Revd Christine and Nick Broad, and in praying for Christine as she moves to her new ministry as Rector of Holy Cross, Woodchurch. We offer our congratulations to Christine, also, as she takes up her new role as Dean of Women in Ministry for Chester Diocese.
Revd Joe, who was unable to be present because of ill-health, sent the following message:
Christine and Nick, as we think about the thirty-four months since you joined our church family, we are filled with gratitude! In that time, you have brought so much to our life together, and we are grateful to God – and to you – for each day you have been with us. Today we say thank you to God for your gifts of leadership, your confident joy in the Gospel, your passion for making a difference in the lives of others. Christine, we wish you every joy and every blessing in your new ministries at our mother church at Woodchurch and across the diocese. Nick, we thank you for your continuing ministries here, and wish you well in all that you will bring to Woodchurch. We ask God to bless you both and to bless your family.
