Passing on the relay baton

Posted on 04 September 2006
Ferndale’s ongoing association with the UCCF has been recently continued with Stephen Pryor commencing a year on the Relay programme, based at Stockton. Stephen’s involvement follows that of others associated with the work at Ferndale: Peter Dray (2003-4), Gareth Leaney (2004-5) and Anna Hartridge (2004-5).

Stephen Dray, pastor of Ferndale Baptist Church, is delighted with the continued links with student work. He reflects the experience of many when he says, ‘I was first discipled at University through the Christian Union and obtained there the first opportunities to be involved in leadership and ministry. Many of the Christian leaders I meet today have the same story to tell… the UCCF is arguably the most effective means of reaching university-educated young people today and has produced some of the finest Church leaders in the United Kingdom over the last 70 years or so.’
