We have been so privileged to have had Andrew Roberts working as part of our circuit team for quite a number of years - and now he's moving on from us! We shall miss Andrew's energetic, yet gentle ministry; his creativity; and his thought-provoking teaching; and I shall miss him as a friend and pastoral supporter.

No doubt there will be many tributes paid to Andrew when he takes his last official service with us on Sunday evening. But undoubtedly what will stay with us will be his warmth and kindness. Andrew has been with us through some truly blessed times - and some tough experiences as well - and in them all he has demonstrated a gracious, caring, ministry and has shared his wisdom with us.

We wish Andrew, and Shona and Matthew, God's richest blessing as he moves to a new location and some fresh challenges as well. We are sure that as well as Andrew's 'Holy Habits', God will use him in increasingly fresh ways of the Spirit and will touch many more lives as he continues to share the good news of Jesus.

Andrew, we thank you for all that you have given to us under God's direction and we commend you to His care as you move from us 'into pastures new!'
