A Great Pleasure

It was a great pleasure yesterday morning to welcome Rev. Emma Aikins as the Methodist half of our ministry here at Ruxley. Emma led our communion service, which was followed by coffee and a celebration cake, shared by all, in her honour. It was also a joy to have her son Nana join our “Fish Club” for the younger members of our church family. At a service at Stoneleigh Methodist Church on Wednesday Emma was also officially welcomed into the Wimbledon Circuit of the Methodist Church by local representatives, including the Mayor of Epsom and Ewell.

Church Structures Review underway

We've just started a review to establish an effective church structure and governance systems for a new phase in the life of Ruxley as we seek to move forward in our mission and ministry. A working group has been set up by the Church Council to explore this.  
We are currently considering two main aspects: an outline accountability structure, and how all aspects of church life can be covered by this. The views of all members of the congregation are most welcome, and we are circulating a Feedback Form along with a draft structure. These are available in the Members Area of the Church website and in paper form.
Please do speak to any other member of the working group for more information. The members are:
Rev Mark, Anne Cockram, Nick Borrett, Gill Edwards, Sue Grasby, and Hugh Proctor.
