Haddenham Baptist Church is very pleased to announce that in September, Amanda Pink will be taking on the role of Minister in Training at the church.
Amanda has been actively involved in Christian service for some time, and is now following a call to train as a Baptist Minister, at Regent's Park College (part of Oxford University) through the Regent's In Pastorate Training Scheme. She has been commended to do this by her local Church, the Ministerial Recognition Committee of the Baptist Union, and after a very challenging interview process at Regents.
Amanda joins us from Minster Road Baptist Church on the Isle of Sheppey where she has been a Youth and Community worker at the Church and a part time teaching assistant at a local school. After completing a Degree in Theology at Redcliffe College, Gloucester, she has been heavily involved in her home church, working as a part time manager for The Noise on Sheppey, an organisation engaged mobilising youth to work in social action. Amanda has also undertaken some part time chaplaincy duties at a local prison, and does work for the Family Trust.
Outside of church, Amanda is interested in Music (plays the guitar and sings), is a member of a community choir, and dances.
We are all looking forward to working with Amanda and she will be welcomed to the Baptist Church during the morning Harvest Service on September 22nd at 10.15am.
