Sunday School teacher serves Children and Youth for over seventy years

Sunday School teacher

On Sunday 10th February Mrs Joan French retired as a Sunday School Teacher after more than 70 years. She has served at Wolverton Congregational Church where she began age 13 and continued at Wolverton URC, only having a break whilst her children were little. Since 2005 she's served at West End United Church in Wolverton as the URC and Methodist Churches joined together. Mrs French has been a well loved and appreciated teacher sharing her experience and Bible knowledge with generations. She felt that the time had come to step down now she is in her 90s! 

The church gave a donation to Willen Hospice in her honour, a lovely rhodedendron for her garden, an engraved star, gifts from some of the current children and a Constance Coltman t- shirt (as she was Mrs French's minister when she was a child!).

The church is grateful for her years of service and is hoping some of Mrs French's previous students may be able to help with Sunday School going forward.
