A SPECIAL service of thanksgiving will be held as a long-serving Methodist minister bows out.
Superintendent Minister Rev Alistair Sharp is leaving his post this summer and a service will be held in his honour at Wath Trinity Methodist Church at 6pm on July 16.
Rev Joanne Archer-Siddall from Rotherham Faith Leaders Council said: “We have so much to be thankful for, and as a Circuit we are thankful for all Alistair and his family have meant to us.
“We really want to celebrate all Alistair has meant to us and we urge everyone to be with us to celebrate this event as we wish the family well as they leave us to venture into Cornwall.
“We will also be thanking those who have served amongst us as circuit stewards, welcoming new stewards and commissioning our new chaplains who work in the local community.”
