Since then he has led churches in London and the Midlands.Margaret is a gifted leader and speaker and has her own ministry in mentoring, life coaching, counselling and pastoral work. “Chris and Mags bring with them a wealth of experience, including ministry in Europe and Africa, and we at Springwater are greatly looking forward to a new season under their leadership,” said a spokesperson for the church.“We want to extend our grateful thanks to Barry and Bunny Kirk who have so graciously guided the church over the last few years, and we are delighted that they will be maintaining their connection with us in the future.”For more details, or information on the church’s regular activities, call the church office on (0118) 972 4519.
