The United Reformed Church General Assembly and Synod Moderator, Revd. Kevin Watson, led a Service of Induction and Commissioning for Revd. Peter Clarkson on Monday 19th September at 7pm followed by tea and cakes (in the Cottingley tradition!) and the scheduled Mission and Care Meeting. We are very pleased that Peter felt called to come to us and we responded unanimously that we would welcome him. We will share Peter with Wigton Moor, Leeds, United Reformed Church where he has been their Minister since 1997 and during that time he has also been part-time Chaplain at Leeds Universities.
Peter intends to be in Cottingley on Tuesdays and Wednesday each week, where he will be available in the church office and getting to know the estate. He will also lead Sunday services at the church alternate Sundays.
