Congregation welcomes new pastor

A CHURCH has welcomed its new pastor in a Mirfield venue more accustomed to a younger congregation.

Nick Fuller was officially ordained and inducted as the new Pastor of Mirfield Evangelical Church, which was originally started 20 years ago.

Over 200 people filled the main hall at Crossley Fields Infant and Junior School, in Wellhouse Lane, joining the membership of the neighbouring church to witness the event.

Nick, 33, and his wife Sarah, have both recently finished courses of study at the Evangelical Theological College of Wales at Bryntirion, Bridgend.

They came to the town following the departure of John Harris, who retired as pastor of the church earlier this year.

Originally from Truro in Cornwall, Nick holds a PhD in Microbiology and for 10 years was a Research Scientist at Warwick University before leaving to work full time in the Christian ministry.For further details about the church visit www.mirfield-church.org.uk.
