Ruth Hassall PIC TwoAnnouncement from the Church Wardens

Dear Friends,

It is with a sense of sadness, as well as rejoicing and celebration that we would like to inform you that Ruth our Training and Discipleship Pastor, will be leaving St John’s Church at the end of this year.

We are sad to be losing Ruth as a significant member of our Staff Team, but we rejoice in her new appointment with The Church of England Birmingham, as Assistant Director of Mission.

In this role she will be bringing her skills and gifting to bear within the Growing Younger initiative. You can read more about Ruth’s new role on the Church of England Birmingham website.

There will be opportunity for us to show our appreciation of all that Ruth has given to us over the last four years, both in her ministry and as she has given of herself during that time. We will inform you of those arrangements in due course. In the meantime, please continue to pray for Ruth, as she prepares for her new and challenging role, which offers amazing opportunities both for Ruth and those whom she will be serving.

If you want to make a gift in appreciation of Ruth’s ministry please put it in an envelope marked Ruth Hassall and put in the offering or post through vestry or Church Office door.

Yours in the Lord Jesus,

Debby Bridge and Brennan Horne

Church Wardens
