Both of our Ministers would normally lead worship across the Colchester Circuit.
They may also occasionally lead worship in other churches in Colchester and elsewhere.
In principle, Methodist ministers never retire.
A minister who “sits down” in the ministry no longer has responsibility for a church or circuit, but is expected to continune to contribute to the overall ministry of the church as long as they are able. We are blessed to have several such mininsters in our circuit.
In addition to Ministers, Methodist Churches have Local Preachers. These are lay people who have other daily employment but have trained and are qualified to preach. They are not ordained Ministers.
