In two weeks' time, from November 4th to 7th, our District Chair, Rev David Hinchliffe, will be involved in the first round of Stationing for the Connexional year 2020 — 2021.
This is a very complex and stressful time for all involved, and I invite you to ask your circuit to pray for David as he meets with the other District Chairs and Connexional representatives.
The following circuits are involved with stationing:
5 presbyters and 1 deacon from our district are also engaged in the stationing process
Those of you who are familiar with the stationing process will know that probationer presbyters are stationed in a different way, later in the process.
Please ask your circuit to hold everyone concerned in their prayers.
With every blessing
District Prayer Co-ordinator
