On Friday 31st August 2018, there was a service of Induction and Welcome from the Ilfracombe and Barnstaple Methodist Circuit. for our new minister who has moved from Budleigh Salterton, Devon. The welcome was led by Revd. Ruth Whitehead, the Moderator of the URC South West Synod, and Revd. Graham Thompson, Chair of the Plymouth and Exeter Methodist District. Jonathan will minister to Braunton, Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Marwood and this should keep him quite busy. Do hope you find a bit of time for your hobbies of walking, cycling and gardening, Jonathan! We are all looking forward to getting to know Jonathan and Louise and hope they will soon feel very much at home in the wider North Devon community.
