We’re blessed to have two ministers at Rose Hill: Rev. Peter Powers, who’s responsible for Kennington, Rose Hill and Wesley Memorial, and has oversight of the Methodist involvement at Blackbird Leys; and our retired (or “supernumerary”) minister, Rev. Jean King. Peter is also the circuit’s superintendent (with overall responsibility for all the churches in the area).

Rev. Jean King

Jean has a long history with Rose Hill, and has many fascinating stories to tell about our recent history. She’s also very active in ministry in and around Rose Hill – hosting quiet days, preaching across the circuit, helping lead All Sorts, and does a lot of pastoral work. She’s also been known to abseil to raise money for charity!

Rev. Peter Powers

Peter joined the Oxford Methodist Circuit in September 2020 from the South Warwickshire Methodist Circuit. He’s been involved in lots of different types and expressions of church across the country, and has a particular fondness for Bread Church. Bread Church is a form of fellowship and worship through making and eating bread together. Peter’s previous circuit created this farewell video for him in summer 2020.
