CTNP Pulpit Exchange
In Newport Pagnell, the Christian churches have long had a tradition of taking part in a "pulpit exchange". It’s a very simple idea; each church within the "Churches Together in Newport Pagnell" group gets rid of one of its ministers for a Sunday morning and sends them in the direction of one of the other Christian churches in the town. It’s always an enjoyable experience; not only because it's an opportunity to hear God’s word preached by someone from a very different Christian background, it's also a good demonstration of the Christian unity which exists in the town (John 13:35).
The next "preacher swap" takes place on Sunday, 25th January 2015 and we at the Baptist Church are looking forward to welcoming our old friend Klaus Reidel to Lovat Hall. Klaus is a Deacon at St Bede’s RC church and many of us will remember his ordination taking place a few years ago. Leading the service with Klaus will be our very own Jill Walker and Des Henderson. The service starts at the usual time of 10.30am.
Going the other way, we temporarily say good bye to Jack Walker who is preaching at St. Lukes and to Sarah Harrison who is preaching at the Methodist church.
