Kavita White: September 2014
On Friday 29 August, a special Circuit Service was held at Wesley to welcome the Rev'd Paul Thompson. Paul, who will look after the Hillside Mission Area, has recently moved into the Upper Branton manse with his wife Wendy. Paul and Wendy come from New York, USA, where they have an extensive family.
Superintendent minister, Wendy Warburton, led the service and the sermon was preached by the Chair of District, the Rev'd Monty Hancock. All the circuit churches were represented and the Lady Mayoress of Dappleford also attended. Paul comes to Dappleshire from The United Methodist Church in America.
