The Minister of the “Cadbury Pastorate” (Weoley Castle, Weoley Hill and Bournville URC churches)
Leonora originally hails from the Netherlands, but served as a minister in Birmingham some years ago, and is glad to be back here. Her husband Michael Jagessar is originally from Guyana. She comes then with a wide experience but also understands life in Birmingham, and about being the minister with a group of three different churches.
She will be leading two services a month at Weoley Castle (on the 2nd Sunday at 11, and also one just after lunch at 12 on the 4th Sunday, to fit in with her commitments to the other Churches in the Pastorate. On the fourth Sunday things will still start at 11, but with “something different” including refreshments – see the Newsletter for details.), the other services will continue as usual, with variety given by a mixture of different worship leaders, including ministers and lay people from other churches and denominations and our own members. We shall continue to be available for services for Weddings, Baptisms, Blessings or Funerals, led by Leonora or by URC ministers from nearby. If you would like to arrange one of these, or if you need to talk to the minister for any reason, please email or phone Leonora J-VH email: dsleonora [at] yahoo.co.uk , or the Church Secretary, Min Elson email: min.elson [at] yahoo.co.uk , Tel: 0121 238 0539.
