Sue Peat Welcome service

Former lifeguard and swimming teacher Deacon Sue Peat was welcomed to Gloucestershire at a special service in Stonehouse Methodist Church on Monday 3 September.

Ordained six years ago during the Plymouth Methodist Conference, Sue was greeted by District Methodist Chair Revd Dr. Jonathan Pye and County Methodist Superintendent, Revd Dr. James Tebbutt.

Deacon Sue will work at churches and projects at Quedgeley, Innsworth and Stonehouse and is looking forward to the challenges and opportunities this brings. She is committed to living out her faith in Christ in ways which make the Gospel message relevant to people, and is passionate about how the Church interacts and relates with the community.

Born in Mansfield Nottinghamshire, Sue left school at 16. After working for John Lewis she trained as a lifeguard and swimming teacher. Sue went onto train at Cliff College Derbyshire and worked as a Youth Pastor in Dorset before going onto train at the Wesley Study Centre in Durham as a Deacon. Her first appointment was in the West Durham Methodist area.

Deacon Sue Peat succeeds Deacon Steve Peck who retired two months ago.
