Hello! As I write this, I am preparing to get all my belonging together, say goodbye to all the folk here in Milton Keynes where I’ve lived and worked for the past five years, and head for the South West. Ever since my visit in November, I’ve been looking forward to this next phase of ministry – everyone was lovely, the churches clearly have much going for them, and what a beautiful part of the world! I met a few of the Exminster folk in November, but I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you much better from September. My passion is for pastoral ministry, and encouraging churches to be all they can be, in their life together and in their outreach, and that’s what I look forward to doing amongst you. I also love helping people to explore the Christian faith and I’ll be delighted to help with those things in any way I can. My time in Milton Keynes has given me an understanding of what it is like to minister in places where new communities are growing alongside older ones, so hopefully that should stand me in good stead in Exminster! That said however, I’m sure I’ve got much to learn from you as well as something to offer as we get to know each other better in the months ahead. I’m very much looking forward to it! God bless, Ben
