Brian Hadfield, will be our new minister following Steve Santry, We welcome Brian to our church.

Brian has been in ministry for more than 20 years and has been a minister in our circuit for a number of years and and served previously in North Devon.  He was a Pastoral Assistant for eight years prior to training at Bristol.

His priorities in ministry include an openness to witness for Christ and promote discipleship.  Also important is a varied experience of worship, prayer and healing.  He is keen that preaching should be seen to be relevant and be grounded in scripture.   This means contemporary issues are often explored in worship.   As a result of the Sea Sunday Services Brian was recently made Chaplain to Sidmouth Lifeboat.

Brian is married with three girls.  He is a regular listener to Radio Four Extra.   His interests include photography, cinema and motorbikes.

Hear more from Brian in our next Forward Ministers letter at the end of the month.
