Supporting Local Preachers
The Methodist Church is trying to improve communications with Local Preachers, and the first phase of this to try to update contact information. If you are a local preacher, or know any, there’s a simple sign up form here. There has been a great response so far, but please do share this as the church wants to be able to reach as many as possible.

District Local Preachers’ Secretary
Hello! I’m Gill Dascombe the District Local Preachers’ Secretary. I work as a Hospital Pharmacist for Pennine Care NHS Trust in Ashton-under-Lyne. I have been a Local Preacher since 1987 in the Hazel Grove and Poynton Circuit, during which time I have been Circuit LP secretary and ‘Faith and Worship’ tutor. I love all aspects of being a Local Preacher, but my special interests include the creative use of prayer and music in worship, narrative preaching, and the leading of retreats and quiet days.
