The Reverend Andy McManus has been inducted into the post as minister of Morton New Day and Dyke Baptist churches.
Morton New Day Baptist church was full with about 100 people on Sunday to see the Rev Andy McManus, from Bourne, take up the position and say goodbye to Pastor David Hughes and his wife Rosie.
After 10 years of dedicated service to the community in and around Morton and Dyke, David has taken a new leading Christian post with Rural Ministries, overseeing a huge section of England as a Senior Pastor.
Mr McManus said he is honoured and delighted to take up the position as new pastor of both the churches.
He said: “The church is buzzing at the moment there are more than a thousand people in the Morton area and we want to get even more people of into the church.”
