I’m really enjoying my job with the Wales Training Network, but it is no secret that I’ve missed being in pastoral ministry. One result of The Fruitful Field project is that WTN will be coming to an end in 2013 to be replaced by one of the new regional training teams. In truth, the new structure probably won’t be be very different from what we already do in Wales, but this change has provided me with an opportunity to go in to the Methodist stationing system with a view to a new appointment.
I’m excited to say that stationing matched me to a circuit and they didn’t run a mile when they met me. So (subject to the Conference, as always) from September 2013 I’ll be the superintendent minister of the Shropshire & Marches Circuit.
