WMC: January 2017
Who? Why? When? What? Where and How?
We are delighted that Rev'd. Robert Jones will be leading this Circuit Event on Saturday 28th Jan 2017 from 10:00am-1:00pm here at Wantage Methodist Church
Robert has a wealth of experience in the field of Chaplaincy, previously heading up all the chaplaincy work across our Connexion.
This event will be a great introduction into what Chaplaincy is all about, and we do encourage you all to come along and join in. It will be a mixture of presentation and interactive workshop.
As we prepare to take on our chaplaincy initiative at Great Western Park, Robert's presence with us will help to root our work within the rich heritage of chaplaincy that is part of our Methodist tradition.
