Sr Sue celebrates with a church she started 35 years ago

Sr Sue was invited to share in the joyful 35th anniversary celebration of Mead Vale Church in Worle, near Weston-Super-Mare, on 16th November.  Sue had started the church with people living on the Mead Vale estate in 1979 in the newly built Mead Vale Community Hall, when serving as a Methodist deaconess in the Worle Ecumenical Parish.  Bishop Peter Maurice Bishop of Taunton preached and gave the church a special gift – the banner proclaiming “God always keeps his promises”, which he had treasured for many years, and wanted to hand on to a living faith community before he retires next spring.   Rev’d Emma Amyes, currently the Team Vicar at Mead Vale,  led the service, and Sue shared  memories of the church’s beginnings.
