In two weeks' time, from November 6th to 9th, our District Chair, Rev John Hellyer, will be involved in the first round of Stationing for the Connexional year 2018 — 2019. This is a very complex and stressful time for all involved, and I invite you to ask your circuit to pray for John as he meets with the other District Chairs and Connexional representatives.
I also ask for your prayers for those circuits who are looking for new presbyters:
* 36/04 — Thames Valley — a presbyter;
* 36/06 — Wey Valley — a superintendent and a probationer;
* 36/08 — West Sussex (Coast and Downs) — a presbyter and a probationer;
* 36/13 — CSUA — a presbyter;
* 36/21 — North Kent — a probationer;
* 36/25 — South Kent — an Assistant chair/presbyter;
* 36/27 — Canterbury & East Kent — two presbyters
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.
