Our New Friends

From September this year, our Circuit welcomes 3 new churches and will be renamed South Worcestershire Circuit. Broadway and Willersey are both small churches, like Upper Welland. Evesham, however, is large and has many similarities with Lansdowne Crescent. Rev. Israel Selvanayagam will join the ministerial team and Margaret Fuller, currently senior steward at Evesham, will join the Circuit Leaders Team.  There have been several meetings to sort out all the practical arrangements .. financial and human resources among them.  It has been a real pleasure to meet with them and to start working with them.

Getting to know you

There will two events this Summer when we have the opportunity to meet up with our new friends so we can get to know each other properly.


Sunday June 16th

Plans have been made for a social event, to include an illustrated talk about the trip to India, recently taken by Helen Caine with Rev Israel, Margaret Fuller and others.  This will be accompanied by a splendid array of Indian food (among other goodies!).

Saturday September 7th at 4.00 pm

Evesham Church will be hosting a Barbeque on their terrace overlooking the river.

We very much hope that you will take the opportunity to attend at least one of these events to we can get to know each other on pleasurable common grounds!

September 15th at 3.00 pm

Finally, there will an inaugural service for the new Circuit at St. Andrew’s, Worcester.  Gareth Powell will preach and Ian Howarth (Circuit Chairman) will attend. Calling all singers and musicians!  We will be forming a Circuit Choir and gathering instrumentalists together to accompany congregational hymns - pulling out all the musical stops to celebrate the occasion.
