Rev Andrew Mills, Moderator of the North Western Synod of the URC, has accepted a call to return to local church ministry as minister of Christ Church (UM) Lewes, Cross Way (UM) Seaford and Alfriston Mission Project. He and Ruth expect to move there early in 2019.
He has been Synod Moderator since September 2015 during which time Andrew has encouraged local congregations to develop their discipleship. As a consequence of his leadership the Synod Meeting adopted a Missional Discipleship strategy dedicated to helping churches focus on this aspect of their calling. Andrew has also led the Synod to reorganise the way in which stipendiary ministry is deployed, so that ministers’ time and gifts can be focussed in the most fruitful way possible on God’s mission.
