A Farewell Message from Robyn

Robyn May Harris has been a big part of our church community for several years. In particular, over the last 2 years, Robyn has worked very hard on our PCC as our Health and Safety Officer, helping us to carefully plan our response to the Covid situation. Sadly, the time has come for Robyn to move on – but we wish her well in whatever next God has planned for her. God bless you, Robyn, and see you soon! Robyn writes:
In September 2013 I arrived in the UK and needed to find somewhere to live. I was temporarily staying in Richmond and took the H37 to Isleworth to view a flat. On the way back to Richmond I didn’t realise I was waiting for the bus at the wrong stop. I hate looking like a fool so instead of just crossing the street and going to the bus stop opposite I walked down to the next stop. That bus stop was directly across from a beautiful old church. I said to myself “If I get this flat I’m going to go to that church”. So in October I started attending St John’s.
Since then St John’s and its’ congregation has played a big part in my life. I have made wonderful friends who have supported me throughout my life here. But now the time has come for me to move on. I will never forget the love and support you’ve shown to me over the years. Just because I’m no longer a part of the congregation does not mean that my love for you all has ceased. My decision to move on is a personal one and has nothing to do with anyone or anything at St John’s with St Mary’s. Please do stay in touch as I still see you all as family. And don’t be surprised if you see me at the occasional church event. May the Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from the other.
Love always,
Robyn May Harris
