The Benefice of Pattishall with Cold Higham
A very heartfelt thank you
Paul and I would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to everyone in Amelcote Benefice. The outpouring of love and affection was so emotionally challenging for both of us as we shared my last day of services with you at Pattishall and Cold Higham. The lunch brought together people for all 4 of the parishes and the gifts and cards we received were just incredible.
We have so enjoyed the last 5 ½ year with you and it is with very mixed emotions that we leave for Staffordshire where we firmly believe God is calling us to be. Thank you for everything.
If you ever find yourself between Uttoxeter and Stone and fancy a coffee, give us a ring and we will be only too happy to see you.
Once again, many thanks and may God continue to bless Amelcote benefice
