    It was with great sadness that the fellowship of believers meeting here at Gordon Road Evangelical Church learned of the passing on Friday 19th January of their beloved brother in Christ Dick Saunders.  On retirement from having spent a lifetime of public ministry with the Way to Life broadcasts on Trans World Radio and Gospel Tent missions the length and breadth of the UK he took up the teaching ministry at Gordon Road.

    For some 20 years or so he has been inspirational in his preaching and has seen much fruit for his efforts in the growth of the fellowship both numerically and spiritually. It was a great sadness to him when his failing health curtailed his active involvement in church leadership and preaching but he still remained an encouragement to the members.

    One of his favourite sayings was that “The best is yet to come” something which for Dick has become a reality as today he is in the presence of his Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Throughout his long service for the Lord he was indebted to his wife Betty for her faithful support and it is to Betty, daughter Jane, grandson Zak, son Paul and the wider family that we extend our sincere condolences.

    “Well done good and faithful servant: …. enter thou into the joy of thy lord” Matthew 25 : 21
