Dear Worship Leaders

Having been “advertised” for the past few months on the District website, at last the new District Worship Leader (WL) Enabler has arrived!

 It’s a bit daunting writing an introductory letter, however I think I ought to share something of myself with you…

 Who am I?

  • I’m a member at Thatcham Methodist Church in the newly formed Kennet & Test Valley Circuit. 
  • I’m an experienced WL (about 10 years) and school governor trainer, a member of our church Worship Consultation and a new church steward. 
  • I enjoy traditional and contemporary worship, and am willing to have a go at most things in worship, although it has to be said that dance is not my forte! 
  • In my “day” job I’m a Family Support Worker working with West Berkshire’s vulnerable children and their families. (2.5 days a week) 
  • I’m married to Richard, have 4 children (two at university, one living and working in London and one in Year 13).
  • In my spare time, I like caravanning (new hobby), reading, cooking and music.

 What is my role?

  • To encourage circuits to promote the recruitment and training of new WLs.
  • To establish regular communication with WL representatives and to encourage you to set up groups of “neighbouring” circuits to develop and understand training needs,
  • To encourage a culture of mutual co-operation and recognition of gifts and graces between LPs and WLs in circuits (working alongside the District LP Enabler.)
  • To be available to respond to invitations – to assist with local WL training and recruitment.
  • And a few other things besides!

 What can I do for you?

  • I’m happy to advise and support you in WL training
  • To speak at meetings about the role of WLs
  • To provide information and suggest resources for WLs
  • Anything else you ask – within reason!

The role of District Worship Leader Enabler is new to all of us, and I’m sure it will evolve as time goes on.

 I intend to use the District website as much as I can, so do look on there for updates.   For WLs who don’t have access to the internet, information will be posted to you. 

I look forward to speaking with you and meeting you.  Please do get in touch if you think I can support you in your role as WL.

Yours in His service

 Karen
