Meet the Team!

Our new ministry team

Across Guiseley, Yeadon & Bramhope Methodist churches we have our ministry team of Rev. Roger Smith and Jean Fletcher pictured here.

Another link you’re probably not aware of is that Jean’s sister was one of Roger’s church stewards in Bradford 20 years ago! 

Jean will support existing church activities but her main focus is helping us to link with people outside the church.  If we are to have a future as a church, we must build new relationships and respond to people’s needs in new ways.  Jean can’t do this on her own – we all have to play our part  – and working as a ministry team will bring exciting opportunities.

We’re delighted to announce that the Circuit has appointed Hester Ayling as Children’s Worker.

She’ll be supporting children’s activities in Bramhope, Guiseley and Yeadon as part of a ministry team with minister Roger Smith and activities organiser Jean Snaith.

Hester grew up in Addingham and now lives with her family in Yeadon. She has worked as a primary teacher and has lots of experience working with young children in church.

She is a member at the Mosaic church in Leeds.

Hester is looking forward to starting her new job on 15th April
