New Minister

Our new minister, The Rev Dr John Amankwatia started his ministry in Banstead today with his first service in our church that included Holy Communion. Atypically, he conducted the Sacrament of the Last Supper at the beginning of the service.

The sermon was based on the Bible story about Jesus meeting the woman at the well in Samaria ~

John 4:13-14: Jesus answered, ‘Everyone who drinks water, from this well, will need more water later. Whoever drinks my water will never need more. My water will be like a stream that gives *eternal life’.

The story unfolded as three readers enacted the scene, bringing the scripture alive.

Our new minister certainly made an impression and the service was not the usual run of the mill. Our congregation will have to get used to a few surprises!
