Rev. Graham Ransom, Circuit Superintendent, says:

Some of you will have met with the Minister suggested last Saturday (13 November.) Her name is Grace Cauldwell, who is currently stationed in the Nidd Valley Circuit, and living in Harrogate. Grace came with Ben, her husband and their two children, Edward and Emily and was given a whistle-stop tour of the circuit, and of the manse.

Following this visit, the Circuit Invitation Committee met and agreed with the thoughts of the Stationing and Matching Group, that Grace would make a valuable contribution to the growth of the circuit.

I am delighted to say that Grace was invited to move to the circuit, subject to the approval of the 2022 Methodist Conference, and Grace agreed. She will, therefore, become the Superintendent Minister of the South Lakes Circuit starting on 1st September 2022.

My thanks go out to all who helped make the visit such a success.

In the meantime, we had a similar visit to the Ryedale Circuit in North Yorkshire, which had the same outcome. We were invited to go and minister over there, and were delighted to accept.

Please pray for Grace and her family.
