Welcome to our new minister
It was a joy to welcome Revd Bill Miller to be inducted as our new minister on Saturday 28th September.
An introduction from Bill in his own words:
So who is this new minister of Cambourne Church? Who is Bill Miller?
I am a husband of one and a father of three - two boys and a girl. I was previously the minister of Maidstone Baptist Church in Kent and before that of West Bromwich Baptist Church in the Midlands. I have been a probation officer in Coventry, an English teacher in Pakistan and a care assistant in Essex. I have degrees in Natural Sciences, Social Work and Theology. I enjoy watching rugby, but was never very good at playing it. I enjoy stand-up comedy, but sometimes feel guilty at the jokes which make me laugh. I have been involved in quite a number of community projects - especially those working with homeless people. I am someone who loves reconciliation and has been known to shed a tear when a film shows people who were hostile learning to love one another. I am someone who believes in a God who is in the business of reconciliation - turning enemies into friends.
And here I am in Cambourne. I have much to learn as a newcomer, but I am excited to be part of a church that has been building community here ever since the first homes were built. I am excited to be in a church where different Christian traditions are being woven together into one tapestry. And I am greatly looking forward to beginning the next part of my adventure with God here, among you, in this town.
