Here is Rob Jones the new Baptist pastor for the Kelso area, pictured with his wife Fiona (and his boys hidden behind).
‘I am keen on the church going forth, and reaching people outside of conventional boundaries. As such, I am also a Workplace Chaplain, and hope to offer my personal support to small businesses in the coming weeks and months at this difficult time for us all. When I am not pastoring my interests include all kinds of cycling, wild camping, good live music, and messing about with old computers. Prior to becoming a pastor I was a design engineer for 15 years, so I still try and keep a few interesting projects going. My wife Fiona is a part-time primary school teacher, she enjoys feeding the 5000, and creative writing (check out her writers page on Facebook ‘Fiona M Jones’). Michael is at Heriot Watt having just completed his first year of a Maths & Physics Degree, and Benjy is entering 6th year at High school, hoping to get into vet school. We look forward to the end of lock down and meeting some of you soon!’
Rob is going to be inducted by Zoom into Kelso Baptist Church on Saturday the 30th of May. We look forward to welcoming him and his family to Kelso and working alongside them to build God’s Kingdom.
