Peter Butcher

Property Steward



Peter and Jane moved to Buckingham, from Sussex, in June 2003, with their three young boys.  They soon found a welcome at Well Street Church for both them and their very boisterous children!  Through the years they have seen changes in venue, times of services and worship style but the basis of being a welcoming church family has remained. 

Jane has served in various areas of church life, from creche, junior church, coffee rotas and Mission Steward.  She is now into her second term as church Elder and is currently the Chair of Trustees, as well as being part of the youth team.

Peter finished a six year term as Circuit Steward in the 3 Bs Methodist Circuit at the end of 2023, and has now taken on the role of Property Steward for the Well Street United Church building – a role which is certainly keeping him occupied.

Now they have left full time paid employment behind them, Peter and Jane love to get out and about as much as possible, making use of their caravan and visiting their sons in Leeds and Brighton.
