Welcome to Katharine!
We were delighted to welcome Katharine Phillips formally to her new role as our Children's, Youth and Family Worker (CYFW). She will be leading our youth work Putney and Roehampton, as well as serving in Chiswick. At this special service, held at Putney Methodist Church, Katharine was welcomed into her role and commissioned for her new work.

Deacon Kathy's Ordination
This summer we celebrated the ordination of Deacon Kathy Johnson into the Diaconal Order of the Methodist Church. Deacon Kathy has served in our Circuit for the last three years as a probationer minister and should have been ordained last year. Owing to COVID, her big day inevitably had to be postponed so it was good finally to celebrate this special occasion in June with her family and fellow ordinands. We rejoice with Kathy in this confirmation of her calling and vocation. (Photo of the COVID-safe service below.)
