The Rt. Rev Francis Samuel Nabieu

Below is an update on what is happening in the York Circuit regarding services for the late Rt. Rev Francis Nabieu.

Memorial Service

As many of you will know, a service was held on Tuesday 17th May which gave people an opportunity to come together and remember the life and ministry of Francis relatively soon after the shocking news.

A further Memorial Service is now planned for Sunday 19th June at Clifton Moor Church at 7pm.  This will be a further opportunity to celebrate Francis' life and ministry with particular emphasis on his contributions to Clifton Moor and within the Circuit.

Any for whom this would be a convenient time and venue would be very welcome.

Book of Remembrance

We have been collecting pages for the Book of Remembrance.  Peter, it would be helpful to know the cut off date you have in mind for this so that we can make sure that these pages are with you in time.


As Richard noted, I'm sure that people here would also wish to know of the opportunity to give donations.  Peter, if you could supply us with any details about this as they become clear that would be most appreciated.

With all good wishes


Rev Leslie M Newton
Superintendent Minister, York Methodist Circuit.
