The Northampton District is a delightfully diverse area. The communities we serve include city centres urban and suburban areas including new housing developments, and many rural communities and sometimes all of these can be found in one circuit.
The district has made an appointment for a District HR Officer, Leslie Jaeger, who leads the HR advisory and administrative function for the district and its constituent churches and circuits.

God of all grace, you do not need us to agree with one another,
but you do call us to love one another just as you love us.
We know your love to be generous and gracious. May we share graciously and generously.
You created us to be a part of your diverse creation,
richer for being a gift and not a threat to one another.
So give us courage every day, not just to worship you but to follow where your love leads. Amen.
