Our minister Rev Pat Nimmo will leave us at the end of July 2020.  She will take annual leave from 9 July 2020. I know this has come as a shock to some of us.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Elmwood and the WhatsApp groups to sincerely thank Pat for her spiritual leadership since June 2015 at Elmwood URC and especially to the WhatsApp group during lockdown.  I know that Pat started the WhatsApp group from the first Sunday of lockdown 22 March, when many people didn't know where to turn to.  We were blessed with daily morning and evening prayers and Sunday service at 11am.  We have learned a different way of worship; still praising God.

Pat, we wish you every success in all that you do.  We pray God's continued blessings upon your family and you. 

Sincere thanks and Love

Claudette Binns
