Ormesby church to get new minister
Rev Elizabeth Stoner has accepted the call to become minister at Light of Life Baptist Church in Ormesby St Margaret, and hopes to start by the autumn.
Elizabeth and her husband Kevin will be moving up from Essex, where she has been assistant pastor at Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay Baptist Church. Kevin is a teacher and will be taking up a post at a school in Norwich. They have three grown-up children.
They hope to move up to East Norfolk later in the summer, but this will depend on the coronavirus situation.
The congregation and leaders at Light of Life Church are very excited about Elizabeth joining them as they have been without a minister for several years, and she is looking forward to getting to know everyone and becoming fully involved in the church and local community.
Jenny Nicholson, from Light of Life Church, said “Please pray for Elizabeth and Kevin as they embark on this significant move and for Light of Life Church as we prepare to welcome them”.
Light of Life Baptist Church made the news in September 2015 when they turned their building into The Chapel Coffee House community café. This followed a period when the premises received a complete makeover, with new furniture and equipment, and a team of volunteers led by a café coordinator. Consequently, the Sunday services now usually take place, in normal times, at All Saints Parish Hall in nearby Scratby.
