During a recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land by folk from the Pembrokeshire Methodist Circuit, Mrs Muir Bird of Tenby was presented with a certificate for 60 years service as a Methodist local preacher.
The presentation was made during a communion service by the side of the Sea of Galilee at Tabgha by Rev Hugh-John Wilson, the Circuit’s Superintendent Minister.
Mr Wilson said “it was a huge privilege to present this certificate to a wonderful person who remains an active and much valued local preacher serving the churches in Pembrokeshire”. He commented that Tabgha is the traditional site of the feeding of the five thousand by Jesus so there is no more appropriate place on earth to present this certificate to someone who has spiritually fed so many people over the years,
Pictured with Mrs Muir Bird by the Sea of Galilee are Pembrokeshire Methodist Circuit’s probationer minister Rev Lorette Hinson and Superintendent Minister Rev Hugh-John Wilson.
