Godmanchester Baptist Church will be holding a special service to welcome their new Youth Pastor, Daniel Beckett, on Saturday 11 September at 3pm.

Daniel moved here with his wife and two children over the summer from Sheringham in North Norfolk where he has been the Youth Pastor at Sheringham Baptist Church for 9 years.

“I am really excited to be here in Godmanchester and am looking forward to the possibilities, challenges, and opportunities over the coming months and years”, Daniel said. “It’s good that the church values its young people highly enough to see the need to employ a youth pastor.”

The church already runs a number of youth clubs during the week and supports young people in the area. Daniel said, “My work will be in both the church and the community, working to support and encourage young people. For some I will be encouraging them in their Christian faith, and for others I will be offering a listening ear, and an understanding point of view.”
