First Service For New Minister

Reverend Noel Lloyd-James

The Rev. Noel Lloyd-James will be preaching for the first time on Sunday as minister of Burton Latimer Baptist Church. Mr Lloyd-James moved to the new church yesterday from Drayton Parslow, near Bletchley where he has spent the past two years.

Before that he was minister of the Baptist Church in Wales' only new town - Cwmbran in Monmouthshire. Mr Lloyd-James has two sons, one of whom is an Anglican priest at Port Slade, near Brighton, while the other is Senior Medical Officer of Health for Hampshire.

Mr Lloyd James recieived six years' theological training at Bangor Baptist College and Bangor University. "My main anxiety is to build up the congregation in Burton Latimer and to bring the Christian Gospel to bear in all phases of the church and the town" he said. Speaking of young people in the Baptist Church, he said he would like to see them taking a more active part in the church services themselves. His hobbies are fishing and gardening.
