We are grateful that the Rev Dr David Hinchliffe, Chair of the Methodist South East District will be presiding and preaching at this very special service and that as many guests as possible, given the current restrictions, will be there, representing other churches, other faiths and the civic work in this area. Amongst the expected civic guests are Cllr Beryl Hunwicks, Jonathan Lord MP and HM Lord-Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneux.
Sam joins us from the South Kent Circuit where she has spent the last nine years as Superintendent Minister. She is looking forward to a new chapter of her life and ministry here in Woking, meeting the existing congregation and welcoming new members.
