Steve Jackson (2).jpg



THIS WEEKEND we have to say "Goodbye" to our Superintendent Minister the Rev Steve Jackson who has been with us for the past sixteen years and has served us so well.

They say that 'Goodbyes' are never easy - and that's certainly true for all of us who have worked alongside Steve. We have valued his gentle, gracious, encouraging ministry as well as his leadership and friendship. We will miss him!

We are grateful to God for bringing Steve and Kate to us and as we look back we can see so many ways in which The Lord has moved in them and through them to bless us. It has also been our privilege to see Alisha and Nathanael 'growing up' among us.

Steve and Kate's ministry has enriched so many people - individuals and families throughout the Gornal and Sedgley community. We are grateful to God for all that they are as well as for all that they have done.

We pray for them as they move on to work within a new group of churches - not too far away - and we know there will be fresh opportunities and fresh challenges for them in their new appointment. We pray for God's richest blessing to be upon them as a family and we will be forever grateful to have had them as part of our journey.
