Martyn Filsak

My name is Martyn Filsak and I am Circuit Pastoral Lay Worker for the Vale of Stour Circuit from September 2017 to July 2019.  This is a part-time post in which my role is to help the circuit ministers with pastoral visiting.

Many of you will know me already, since I have been a member of The United Church Lye for over 10 years, and am also a circuit local preacher.  Some of you may have seen me at one of my occasional appearances as speaker at midweek meetings, or at one of the circuit stargazing events that have been held in recent years.

Your own minister will still be fully active in visiting, but may be passing some visits to me where appropriate.  Please continue to inform your minister of anyone who may benefit from a pastoral visit, whether it is yourself or someone else.  It could be someone unwell or in hospital, housebound, bereaved, generally going through a difficult time, or simply someone who would appreciate another person to chat to for a while.  I feel that it is a great privilege to assist the ministers by serving you in this way.
