Going back To Beds

Home » News » Going back To Beds

Rev. Jim Gorringe and his wife Pamela are retiring to Beds. This is familiar territory as Jim was a minister there for several years and a part-time prison chaplain at Bedford jail.

At Sunday's Songs of Praise service, Jim said that he had reached the point when it was time to retire. Looking back over some 38 years, the sense of call into preaching and then into the ministry he had felt very strongly. His 31 years in ministry had an inevitable impact on the family and he paid tribute to his wife Pamela for her contribution to their time together. "We are now going back to Bedford", said Jim, "where God will find something for me to do."

During the last five and a half years, Jim has had an ecumenical role working with our Anglican friends in North Marston. So there will be special Farewell Service for Jim on Sunday 30th July, 6.30pm at North Marston Parish Church, led by the Schorne Team. All are welcome.
