The new Minister of the “Cadbury Pastorate” (Weoley Castle, Weoley Hill and Bournville URC churches)
Rev. Leonora Jagessar-Visser’t Hooft began her ministry at the Cadbury Pastorate with a service of induction at 4pm on Saturday 3rd November 2018. There will be more fireworks as she works with us!
Leonora originally hails from the Netherlands, but served as a minister in Birmingham some years ago, and is glad to be coming 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.
In 2019, she will be leading two services a month at Weoley Castle (on the 2nd Sunday at 11, and also one just after lunch 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 January 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 our Church Community Minister Mark Tubby or by URC ministers from nearby.
