Stephen Dray, pastor of Ferndale Baptist Church, is delighted to have been appointed the new Padre of the Essex Branch of the Submariners Association following nomination by Mick Vanner, Ferndale's own submariner.

Stephen, who is inclined to get queasy at the very sight of the sea, is content to visit submarines in dry dock. However, he is delighted with this further opportunity to get involved in the life of the wider and largely unchurched community. He adds, ‘Submariners are a remarkable group of men, their tales take the listener into a world little known to the rest of us…. They are also a delightfully friendly group of people and I look forward to serving them as best I can in the future.‘
