From the Leadership Team
A few weeks ago the Leadership Team at Oak Grove Chapel announced that Ian and Sue Savory will be leaving their ministry here in the Autumn. They have been invited by Relational Mission to lead the re-planting of the fellowship that met at the King’s Centre in Gorleston, Suffolk, and they will start there in October.
We are also really pleased to announce that from October, our new Senior Leader here at Oak Grove, will be our current Community Pastor, Darren Woodward. He and his wife Lynette, are already at the heart of our mission as a fellowship, and we are thrilled Darren has accepted the call to lead us, as we pursue our vision at Oak Grove.
Ian and Sue will of course be hugely missed, both by friends and family, the church and the local community here in Catton Grove. So it’s good they are not moving too far away, and we look forward to forging new links with the fellowship in Gorleston. As a leadership team, we believe that Ian and Sue have very clearly been called by God to this new work and we wholeheartedly support their decision to answer this call.
We will say goodbye to them formally at a special celebration Service “The Big Send Off” on 22nd September, from 10.00am, followed by a shared lunch. This will take place at our normal Sunday venue - The Hub, Catton Grove Primary School, Weston Road, Norwich. If you would like to come to “The Big Send Off” or need any more information, please contact the Oak Grove office as soon as possible on 01603 403388. If you would like to contribute to the farewells in any way, please also contact the office soon.
For now, we would like to publicly thank both Ian and Sue for their long and faithful service in this place. They have touched the lives of many in this community; been a blessing to the fellowship at Oak Grove is so many ways; and are very special friends.
