Sam’s the man for Tyndale

AFTER almost a year without a minister, a church has celebrated the induction of its new leader.

The Revd Sam Owoo was warmly welcomed at a special service held at Tyndale Baptist Church on Saturday, March 23. Hundreds of people braved snow showers to take part in the service, which was led by the Revd Dr Roger Standing, vice principal of Spurgeon’s College. Sam comes to Tyndale from Hivings Baptist Church in Chesham and his roots lie at Waterlooville Baptist Church in Hampshire. “It is with great joy that we have found Sam and his family,” said Frank Pond, a deacon for Tyndale. “[Previous minister] Ray Coates completed his ministry at Tyndale last Easter with a baptismal service on the Easter Sunday. Sam commenced his ministry with us one year later on Palm Sunday.”The church celebrated Easter with three baptisms and 10 people coming into membership.“We are praying that more people will wish to join us in,” Frank added.
