Family, friends, clergy and members of both Cornerstone Church and Long Crendon Baptist Church (LCBC) came together to celebrate the Ordination of Paddy Harris and his Induction as Pastor of Cornerstone Church in July 2012.
Ordained at Long Crendon Baptist Church
Jeff Steadman, Senior Pastor at LCBC led the Ordination service where Paddy was presented with a gift from LCBC church (a barbeque) and a bible from Regent’s College. It was through the vision of the leaders at Long Crendon Baptist Church that Cornerstone was born.
A collage of photographs took a look back on Paddy’s journey in becoming a minister and included talks from Colin Pye regional minister at the Baptist Union, Neil Turton, Hugh Tulloch and Paddy’s father Paul Harris.
Paul Harris who preached at the service said, “I asked you to look after my son and you have done this very well.

Following the service a celebration afternoon tea was served.
