‘Once we’d seen the view from this house, we knew this was the place for us. And now considerable work has been done, the house is beautiful and we consider ourselves very fortunate indeed to live here.’ – Revd and Mrs David Copley
Whatever donation you can make, it helps us in many ways – housing a retired minister with nowhere to go, providing a home for a bereaved partner and children, carrying out vital repairs to safety features, adapting a home so an elderly person can stay in it… We can use whatever you give us, large or small, to make our residents’ lives more comfortable. Every financial gift helps us provide housing at a low rent to all our residents.
‘Early retirement was something I hadn’t planned for. The Methodist Ministers’ Housing Society was extremely helpful and understanding as my children were still at home and taking them out of the area would’ve disrupted their lives, particularly as one was still at school. The Society worked with my local circuit to buy the house I was living in. They’ve subsequently paid for it to be adapted for my wheelchair.’ – Revd Graham Evans
‘When we found out about my husband’s cancer, the Chair of our District called the Society to see if they’d be able to help us in the event of his death. At this time my husband had been in active service for ten years…Our insurance company turned down the claim for critical illness cover and subsequently life insurance. We felt anxious about our circumstances, but the Society was able to help.’ – Sarah Wilson
