Mat Hussain's Induction
12th September 2015Mat was formally inducted as our Minister
A congregation of over a hundred people filled the main church to be a part of Mat's Induction Service on Saturday afternoon.
As well as regular attenders from Thapston Baptist, there were guests from Mat's previous churches in Grange Park, Northampton and Chippenham, Wilts.
Rev. Graham Timson, who acted as Moderator whilst the church had no minister, led the service; Rev. Diane Tidball, East Midland Baptist Association Regional Minister, conducted the Induction Ceremony and Rev. Dotha Blackwood, Mat's tutor at Bible College, brought the message.
As part of the service Mat and Neil Mathieson, Thrapston Baptist Church Administrator, both shared how the God had guided them during the process of Mat being called, and how they were convinced that God will be doing great things in the church in the next few years.
Greetings and a warm welcome to Thrapston were given to Mat by Fr. Brian Leatherland (St Paul the Apostle), Rev. Liz Dunning (Thrapston Methodist) and Lindsey Burch (St James's).
After the service we enjoyed a celebratory tea.
