A circuit service giving thanks to our Minister, Revd Robert, on his retirement was held on Sunday, 14 August. Connon was full with at least 100 people wanting to be part of such a memorable occasion. The service was lead by Revd Mark Pengelly. It was a happy, informal service with hymns chosen by Robert and Marion. Amusing anecdotes of Robert’s ministry were recalled but the overall message was of Robert’s caring empathy, good humour and guidance. The service was followed by another Connon ‘Wow’ tea and we are looking forward to having Robert back amongst as a Supernumerary Minister.
