Our District Chair, Gill Newton, is the current President of the Methodist Conference, with Deacon Kerry Scarlett, from the Birmingham Methodist District, the Vice-President.
Gill has been Chair of the Sheffield District since 2014 and prior to that was Co-Superintendent in the Barnsley Circuit for four years (2002 – 2006) with her husband Leslie.
Revd. Gill Newton said: "I am both humbled and honoured to have been entrusted with this role by the members of the Methodist Conference. With God's help and together with the Vice President, Deacon Kerry Scarlett, I look forward to the opportunities we will have to encourage, inspire and challenge the Methodist people during our year of office."
