(from 1st September) Rev NOREEN DALEY-LEE


Dear Friends,

It has been a privilege and honour to have had the opportunity to serve as a Methodist minister among you. I always knew I was here for a short period but never thought it would be this quick. I have enjoyed ministry here at Cheddington. Your reception of me has been beyond description. I want to thank those who have stopped me in the street to speak to me. I hope I was polite and receptive. Those who attended Sunday morning services and every third Thursday Communion, I pray for the Lord’s continued blessing upon you. I shall remember you in my prayers as I enter a new phase of ministry. 

As stated in my first letter, I am a salesman selling a two-thousand-year-old product, Jesus. He never expires, and no new model replaces Him. ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.’ (Hebrews 13:8). The implication is that establishing a relationship with Jesus is eternal. He will always keep His promises, especially that of His presence remaining with you. However, you may be struggling with your health, marriage, family, job, addiction, fear, loneliness, or finances raising doubts in your mind. Remember God’s assurance to Paul in Philippians 4:19 that He will supply all his needs following the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. With this mindset, you may pray: ‘Dear loving and faithful God, my needs overwhelm me, help me to bring each of them to you, and trust that you will provide. You know my condition even more than I do, for which I thank you. I also thank you for the assurance given to me in your word.

Now, I want to commend my successor, the Revd Noreen Daley-Lee and her family. I pray that you give them the same, if not better, reception you have provided me. Please pray that she will be fruitful in the Lord’s vineyard in word and deed and that you will grow together in Him.
Once again, thank you. I pray that the Spirit of God that brought Jesus Christ back to life will work in you, your families, friends, and all your endeavours.

With every blessing of God,

We shall be sad to say ‘Farewell’ to John because although he has only been with us a short time he has endeared himself to us.  We have been inspired by his services, his caring and his infectious smile and sense of humour.  We wish him well as he moves to London and hope he and his family soon begin to settle in their new surroundings.
