I am thankful that our new Circuit Administrator, Rebecca Taylor (known as Becky) starts on Wednesday, 12th May. Please give her time to settle in before getting in touch. You can always welcome her using the Circuit Office email address.

She will need two or three weeks to familiarise herself with the work  —  and please don’t expect her to know everything even then!  I am very much looking forward to working with her.

[Rev. Yvonne].




C Aid logo 120x54Christian Aid week is fast approaching.  It runs from 10th to 16th May. As collecting and donating cannot be tackled in the usual ways again this year, people are having to be imaginative about how to deal with the situation.  See descriptions of the various ways individual churches and particular areas are approaching the challenge. 

If you would like to donate or collect, see whether there are approaches described that you can take advantage of or do something of the same kind. 

If you want to publicise how your church or your area intends to support Christian Aid Week this year we can add your information to this article and to the 'details' article that follows.  Please let us know by phone or email to any of the following contact points:

  • The web site team
  • The Circuit Office
  • Your local Christian Aid representative:
          Biddulph: David Ludlow
          Holmes Chapel: Caroline Wood
          Trinity: Chris Caswell
          Wellspring: Tony Bartley
