Pastoral Transition Message
“TRBC is now in Pastoral Transition following the retirement of Pastor Alan after 23 years of ministry. His last day as minister was 29th February 2016 and his last sermon which was a very emotional one was on the 31st of January 2016. Audio recording of this sermon and his last notice post can be found below.
We thank God for all He has done through Pastor Alan and we pray that God will continue to bless and use him.
Please continue to pray for the church and the leadership team whom God is now using to run the church. Pray for a smooth transition “
Pastor Alan's Last notice post
Many thanks to everyone who made my last weekend as pastor at
Totteridge Road Baptist Church such a memorable and amazing event,
and such a great send off. I appreciated very much all the planning
and effort that went into it.
I appreciated too the kind words and evidence of appreciation for
my years at TRBC. Thanks for all the cards, gifts and good wishes
from the members and others and for the generous gift of the
AppleMac laptop, which I hope to make good use of in the future.
Although I have been planning my retirement for some time,
it was quite a wrench when it actually arrived. But with
declining energy and less ability to function in the way
that the church deserves from its pastor, I think this was
the right time to vacate the position and allow the church
to begin the process of finding a new pastor. However,
having made many friends at TRBC, I hope to remain in touch
and visit from time to time, as well as meeting many of you
individually on other occasions.
You remain very much in my thoughts and prayers, and I look
forward to hearing that you are achieving great things as
you move forward.
God bless you all.
