Circuit Welcome Service

Unfortunately due to restrictions on numbers at Keighley Shared Church and the number of new staff joining us, we are having to limit attendance in situ at the Shared Church to one senior steward per chapel (or their nominated deputy).  The Senior Steward has had a separate email about this.

The service will be live-streamed to Silsden Methodist Church for those who wish to gather in person and it will also be available on Zoom and YouTube.

If you wish to attend at Silsden please book your seat at so that the Circuit leadership can keep track of numbers. The reference for the meeting is :
Topic: Circuit Welcome Service
Time: Sep 5,2021 15:00 London

Finding a new Minister for TEC

"As most of you know, since our previous minister Peter Mayo Smith retired last July we have been actively looking for a new minister.  During late Summer/Autumn of 2020 we interviewed two people (on two separate occasions) for the post but neither of them seemed to be the right person for Eldwick.  It then became increasingly difficult to source a new minister as clergy were generally unwilling to move during Covid, so the trustees agreed not to advertise again at that time.

Following further discussions with the Diocese a new approach is now being considered.  Bishop Toby has suggested a candidate for us who would work full time in a shared post – i.e. they will have responsibility for more than one church.  This has been agreed as a potential way forward, and an interview has been scheduled for 11th September. 

Unfortunately, no further information can be given at the moment as we have been asked to keep most of the details of the post confidential. As soon as we can tell you more, we will.  In the meantime, can we ask you to pray, pray and pray again about this – that God will show both the candidate and the interview panel clearly whether this is the right person for Eldwick."

Anne Brown & Julie Smith on behalf of the Trustees.
