The Ryedale Circuit appoints part-time Circuit Missional lay worker. The Circuit is delighted to announce that Louise Hayes has been appointed to this post, and will begin the role on the 1st September 2016. She will initially spend time with 3 or 4 congregations, discerning with them, how their mission can be worked out in their particular context. There is also an emphasis on developing relationships with the socially isolated and those in the 'third age'. We ask your prayers for her as she covers the admin role over the summer and prepares to take up her new role.
