I moved into the Gloucestershire Circuit of the Bristol District from Cornwall in 2015. I feel privileged to have been appointed as the Forum Representative for this District. Methodism is in my DNA: my father was a Local Preacher, I became a member at 14 and married a Methodist who is an active Local Preacher and involved in connexional affairs. We have three adult children and seven grandchildren. Over the years I have worked within the Methodist Church as a Sunday School teacher, Sunday School Superintendent; singing in various church choirs; have been a District Secretary within MWiB and assisted my husband in a pastoral role when he had pastoral oversight of Methodist churches for six years. Sharing journeys with so many people throughout the Methodist Church and beyond has been humbling and rewarding and I look forward to the opportunity of continuing by serving MWiB.
