Chair of Leeds District: Revd Anne Brown writes:
Thank you very much for the contributions from your circuit, churches and individuals to the cheque I received at the farewell meal organised by the district officers.
I was overwhelmed by your generosity. I'm not quite sure how I will use the money but probably put it towards creating raised beds in our garden and something for the house.
I have greatly enjoyed my time as Chair of the Leeds District — getting to know people in the circuits and appreciate again the beauty of the countryside — it has made retirement into Yorkshire much easier for Andrew and I.
But it has also been a privilege to share in the lives of the people and circuits through preaching, stationing, supervision and working alongside probationers and those in their early years of ministry.
Although there have been challenges and difficult decisions to be made, I am confident that as the circuits move into new districts the strength of the lay and ordained Methodist people of the Leeds district will be a tremendous asset.
Thank you for making me so welcome and trusting me with being your leader over the past twelve months.
Wishing you every blessing in the future.
