Congratulations Andy. That's great news.

Andy Rowell

Congrats, Andy on the pastoral position. You will be a fine teacher I'm sure. Reminds me of quote from Peter Storey.

"Reclaim the Teaching Office. Anything else I say tonight actually depends on this. I have a friend back home whose name is George Irvine, and this very fine pastor says, “If you want to get your congregation moving into mission, you’ve got to do three things: the first is to teach. When you’ve done that, then for goodness sake, teach. That’s the second thing. And thirdly, teach!” This has been my experience."

Peter Storey, "Rules of Engagement: Faithful Congregations in a Dangerous World," Inaugural Lecture for Ruth W. and A. Morris Williams, Jr. Chair of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke University Divinity School. Storey taught at Duke from 1999-2006. http://www.iam.org.za/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=88&Itemid=51


All the best for your move and future, Andy.


Great news Andy. Hope you and the congregation manage to do each other good - then go do Southend good.


Congratulations and every blessing to all of you as you step into the future. Exciting times!

Congratulations and praying God's blessing on you all as you begin this new chapter of life.


Good luck Andy, Hannah and Kirsten. We will miss you in church on Sundays. I have absolutely no doubt that you will do well in your new church, Oxford's loss is Southend's gain! Thanks again for your support, it really meant a lot during a pretty tough time.
God bless you all, Louise

Paul Fromont
