Mrs Angela Doyle:

Angela DoyleI live in Manchester and work for The Methodist Church as an Administrator for Manchester Circuit and Manchester & Stockport District from an office based at The Wesley Centre in Hulme. I was brought up an Anglican, attending Explorers and Pathfinders at St Clement’s Higher Openshaw, Manchester, and becoming a Christian in my teens at Youth Camp in Pooley Bridge, Cumbria. I now worship at Droylsden Methodist. I am a trustee for a local LEP in Gorton and the Nexus Arts Café.

I also work a couple of afternoons a week at Methodist International House in Victoria Park, Manchester.


The Revd Nicola Reynolds:

My name is Nicola Reynolds and I am a Supernumery (retired) Methodist Minister in the Solway Methodist Circuit which is on the west coast of Cumbria.

During my secondary education our school was made up of girls from all denominations and faiths, and I am afraid we often hijacked our RE lessons with discussions about what things meant in all denominations and faiths.

I found that in Cumbria a considerable amount of work was being developed through Churches Together in Cumbria (CTiC) and with the Church Leaders in the county. When I became a Supernumery Minister, I was asked to take on the role of the Methodist District Ecumenical Officer for Cumbria and was asked if I would also become part of the Strategy Steering Group for the ‘God for All’ initiative that the Church Leaders were setting in motion. Throughout my life I have been passionate that all God’s Church should relish the gifts each denomination brings to our lives as God’s people. I offered to become a Covenant Champion as I am aware that great things can develop from small steps.
