Joe & Beth Hadfield, Lydia, Emily & Tilly Youth Ministry, St Georges Church, Poynton, Cheshire
We have now been in Poynton at St George’s Parish Church for 2.5years, we really enjoy living here and have made some friends. Lydia loves being in reception and is in a class with some of her little friends from church. Emily really enjoys pre school and pre Covid we really enjoyed going to the local churches playgroups in the week together. It been great to get to know other people in our community. Tilly was born recently and is a delight. With a pet dog and hamster we have quite a house full!
Covid has been hard particularly on Joe's ministry, seeing no end in sight for when youth groups, 1:1, schools work may be able to start again. It’s been a real sadness for him that one of his groups which had a steady attendance of non Christian kids has had to stop due to Covid and a lack of interest in participating online.
Joe's been running Families Together sessions and writing the material for online Sunday school which has been much appreciated by parents.
We recently said goodbye to Andy, our associate minister who has moved on and we will miss him greatly. We have also welcome our new Incumbent Matthew and his wife Kate. We will loose our curate this spring too so Joe's workload is likely to increase.
Please do pray for us, that we would be blessing to others as we serve here and that’s Joe's work as youth minister would bare much fruit. Please pray for us as we parent our girls, that we would love them well and point them to the Lord. Please pray for our marriage that as we seek to love and serve the Lord that we would love one another better and point to to Him.
