It was a privilege to be appointed by the Methodist Conference to serve as Chair in this district from September 2014. East Anglia is a particularly idyllic part of the British Isles and an area where you can be constantly reminded of the beauty of God's creation.
The East Anglia district is geographically vast and culturally diverse, stretching from the North Norfolk coast to the leafy suburbs of Cambridge and from the flat expanse of the Fens to the bustle of Felixstowe docks! I trust that within this rainbow community you will find a warmth of welcome, an optimism in God's grace and a passion for the Gospel!
Many of you will be aware that Autumn coincides with the Methodist process of stationing, when Chairs of District meet together in the Stationing Matching Group, to make matches between prospective ministers and circuit appointments. This can be an anxious time, for both Circuits and Ministers, particularly at a time in the life of the Church, where there are not enough ordained resources to meet the needs of the Circuits.
