PLEASE READ BELOW A MESSAGE FROM OUR MINISTER THE REV ANDREW FARRINGTON

I wish to inform you that a Probationer Presbyter has not been stationed to this Circuit.

The Circuit Invitation Committee has, with help and guidance from the Chair of District, considered the options that remained open to us. It has been decided that the best route which aids our particular mission priorities and opportunities is to submit a profile for a Minister from another church or Conference (MOCC). These are experienced ordained ministers seeking to move to Great Britain or change from their current denomination. A profile has been written for a Minister to have pastoral oversight of Burton Latimer, Central — Kettering, and Cottingham. This will be a five-year appointment to this Circuit. Progress is being made to purchase a Manse. Rev'd Andrew Farrington will remain as Superintendent Minister with particular oversight at Cornerstone — Corby, Rothwell, and shared ministry at St Giles Church, Desborough. The result of the application will be known in late February 20.

The Circuit Invitation Committee feel that this is a welcome opportunity to experience new ministry and vision. We pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide and for the will of God to be done.

Rev. Andrew Farrington — Superintendent Minister

Kettering & Corby Circuit 23/19
