Can I introduce myself as the new Methodist Minister in Slingsby, following in the footsteps of the much loved Graham Sellers, who tragically died earlier this year. If you think my name is familiar that is because I was Minister here for 9 years from 1994 until 2003 when we moved to Fleetwood. I returned to live in Malton upon my retirement in 2009 and now, much to my surprise find myself working again on a part time basis looking after not only the chapel here in Slingsby but the one at Hovingham as well! I greatly enjoyed the years I was Minister here before and am looking forward to this ‘encore’ which I hope will be equally enjoyable, on both sides. Whilst most of my time will be spent on the life of the chapel I hope, as well, to be able to involve myself in some other activities within the village. If anyone wants to contact me, about any matter, my details are below.
Rev Mike Smith,
