Our Connections

While we are an independent fellowship and responsible for our own affairs, we do have links with other bodies. Some of these can be found below as well as some key people who have been inspirational in our Church life.

PROFESSOR NEIL HOOD, CBE, DBA, MA (Hons), MLitt

Professor Neil Hood, a former member of our Church, who died prematurely after a courageous battle with cancer, forged links for us with the business world. Some of his many accomplishments can be found in the following links:

He was a prolific writer, his specifically Christian books being "Whose life is it anyway?","Whose work is it anyway?", "Whose money is it anyway?" and "Learning at the Crossroads". His last book, completed not long before he died, “I’m Dying To Tell You”, has now been published.

We thank God for every memory of Neil. A great and good man walked humbly with his God among us and we have been hugely enriched by knowing him.

We have many close ties with Pakistan. One of our members, now retired, was a missionary for years in that country and still has an active interest in the work and workers there. Another member’s sister is a missionary in Bolivia.

We also help to support a couple who have spent a lifetime abroad and in England in fulfilling significant roles with SIM.
