Church Announcement - Pastor McConnell called home to glory

It is with profound sadness and indescribable pain that we announce to you that a short time ago the Lord called our beloved Pastor McConnell home to glory. Having been in hospital for about 7 weeks, ‘the Bishop’, as we affectionally knew and loved him, deteriorated to the point that the hospital, despite their best efforts, could no longer do anything for him other than make him comfortable. 

To say we miss him and are going to miss him is an understatement. So, so many people owe so much to him as the man who introduced them to the Saviour. We comfort ourselves with the knowledge that he is absent from the body to be present with the Lord and we shall see him again at the resurrection when Jesus comes again. 

In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are with his family, especially his wife Margaret and daughters Linda and Julie. We would appreciate your prayers for them all at this saddest of times.
