An update about her changing role within our circuit from Catherine.

Hi, some of you may have heard that there has been a change in my role for the Circuit? Many of you will know me as the Community Link Enabler working throughout the Circuit, a job which I have found very enjoyable and rewarding.
You will appreciate that during lockdown and in the months since many of the things that I was doing have not been possible and I have had to adapt the way in which I do things. For example, now instead of going into 13 care homes around the circuit each month to lead a Worship Service I now film a monthly service and save it onto a USB memory stick. Each home has been allocated their own memory sticks which are posted out to them and can be shown to residents on laptops or televisions at a convenient time.
Over this time my role has been evolving and after discussions with the Circuit Leadership Team it was agreed that from the 1st September my job title would change to Local Pastor and the focus of my role would change slightly. I am now working alongside our Superintendent, Gareth, focussing on the areas of Bedale, Masham and Snape as we seek to find new ways of connecting with these communities and new ways of being church in these unusual and difficult times that we are living in. This doesn't mean that the rest of the Circuit will never see me as I will still be assigned to various projects throughout the Circuit from time to time on a time managed basis and I will still be producing the digital worship for the care homes.
I have loved my time working in this Circuit over the last 3 years, getting to know many of you in various settings. I'm excited to see what God has got in store for us as we move forward together seeking to grow His Kingdom in the Ripon and Lower Dales area.
God Bless,
