Induction Service of Revd. Mark Welch 10.10.15

The induction service for Revd. Mark Welch was conducted by our regional minister Revd. Collin Pye. After opening worship, our secretary, Nigel, told how we came to call Mark to the church here and then Mark himself stated his calling and journey to us. Commitments were then made by both minister and members to work together in the life of the church here and in our shared calling to witness to Christ in Burton Latimer.

We were joined by friends from the other churches in the town and from the Kettering Fellowship, as well as Mark's friends and family.

After the service, the ladies of the church excelled themselves in the lovely tea they provided and this gave time for a more informal gathering. 

Thank you to all who helped in any way to mark the beginning of this new chapter in the history of Burton Latimer Baptist Church, whose 271st Anniversary we celebrate this month.
