Our last minister Revd Amanda Pink left Haddenham Baptist Church in September 2018 and is now working as a hospital chaplain with Milton Keynes hospitals. We welcomed Revd Jonny Fillis and his family to our fellowship on Monday 7th September 2020.
Jonny has now been our minister for over 10 months, joining us at a very difficult time with the pandemic, ceasing a great deal of physical contact and worship. Despite this, he has been doing a fantastic job, engaging with the congregation in many creative ways, and being very active in any CTiH event trying to connect with the wider village.
Jonny was once a member at Cornerstone, and is working hard to encourage Cornerstone and Haddenham Baptist Church to work together in as many practical ways as possible. We are currently planning a joint womens retreat weekend away, sharing some of our youth work and looking at the possibility of a joint church weekend.
Jonny did his ministerial training at Regent’s Park College, and Bex, his wife, has family in the area. Jonny is married to Bex and they have 2 small boys, Josh and Toby.
Jonny has chosen to have Friday as his day off. Please don’t contact him on that day, unless it is an emergency, but please contact one of the deacons if you need to speak to someone.
Pray God’s blessing on the family as they minister to us here in Haddenham, and that we are able to support them in many different ways. Let us pray that this will be a fruitful shared ministry.
After more than a year of difficult times due to the pandemic,we managed to have a service of recognition for Jonny on September 26th 2021. What a joyous occasion that was. Dr Anthony Clarke conducted the service, which was very special as Anthony and his family had been very instrumental in Jonny’s journey. Greetings were brought from all the churches in Haddenham, and Jonny’s previous churches, Binley Woods and Dagnall Street. This was followed by an informal fellowship lunch, something we haven’t been able to do for a number of months. We formally welcomed Jonny and the family, but he is already a big part of the church family.
