Risca-based Pastor Tim Moody has been inducted as the new president of the Gwent Baptist Association.
Part of the Baptist Union of Wales, the Association serves 34 churches and chapels in its area providing spiritual and practical help and advice in addition to financial support, where appropriate, for spreading the gospel in local communities and further afield.
Tim, originally from Weston- super-Mare, became assistant pastor at Moriah Baptist Church, Risca in September 2016 and recently successfully completed a ministerial accreditation course at the South Wales Baptist College, Cardiff. He and his wife Laura have a young daughter, Evie. Tim takes up his new voluntary role in succession to the Revd. Dr Suzanne Roberts who has served the Association excellently in the last two years.
Geoffrey Champion, secretary of the Gwent Baptist Association, said: “We are blessed to have quality individuals of the calibre of Suzanne and now Tim serving the Association and its churches. These are challenging times for everyone but it is great to see younger people like Tim working for the Lord and stepping up to take an important ‘lead’ helping the Baptist family and others in Gwent.”
