Introducing Our New Minister.

Thursday, December 12th, 2013


In November 2013 we welcomed our new minister, Revd Tim Haines to St Helens.

Tim comes to us from the town of Weston super Mare in the South West of England, if you don’t know it, he assures us it’s the cultural epicentre of England! He has been in ministry for 5 years having studied at Spurgeons college whilst ministering in London and Weston super Mare, before moving to northern Thailand as a short term volunteer with BMS World Mission.

He has a passion for presenting the gospel through engaging preaching and practical displays of God’s love in local mission. He is expectant, and excited for all that God has done, is doing, and will do in and through the local church here at SHBC for God’s glory, our good and the kingdom of God’s growth here on earth.

Why not come along and say hi?
