It’s great to welcome Brian and Jess Talbot back to the church. Brian is going to be acting as an interim pastor over the next few months. Having been sent out from SBC he has been the senior pastor at Selkirk Baptist for the last thirteen years. Before coming to SBC Brian served as a pastor in Zimbabwe. Both he and Jess have created a video to introduce themselves which you can see here.

They are a great couple and bring lots of experience and insight back to the church. Brian will be acting extensibly with our small groups and pastoral teams to ensure connectivity and to make sure people feel supported through what we hope are the last months of the Coronavirus.
