Message from Rev. Stella Long to the church
As many of you know my appointment comes to a close in the summer of next year. This means that the time has come for Richard and me to decide the shape of our future.
After much thought and prayer we have decided not to request an extension to our ministry here in the Shropshire and Marches Circuit. This means we will sadly be leaving you next summer.
You are aware that I have not been well for sometime and I have not regained my health as quickly as I would expect. As a result I have asked to retire early.
I would like to thank all who have worked so diligently with me over these past few years. It is with great sadness that I am leaving the many friends and colleagues here. I trust you will hold Richard and me in your prayers as I will be holding you all.
May God bless you all.
