Pastor Andrew Price
Hello I’m the Pastor of Nazeing Congregational Church, I’m originally from Shropshire and recently moved here from Colchester where I had two roles, a part time pastor at Prettygate Baptist Church and part time as a postman.
I grew up in a Christian home and always knew I wasn’t a Christian, but equally I always planned to become a Christian at some point. The Bible speaks of a day when Jesus will return, and my plan was to quickly become a believer when I saw it happen! Then, on the 25th November 1975 at a children’s club run by my Dad, he spoke on a verse of the Bible:
Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
– 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
I realized my plan wouldn’t work, a twinkling of an eye! I decided that night to follow Jesus.
We are a welcoming church, a typical service will have a children’s talk a mixture of old and new songs, a couple of Bible readings and some prayer. We don’t take up an offering, we won’t make you pray, you can just come and watch and join in if you want. A service will last approximately an hour, sometimes it will go on a bit longer but not often. Every week I will take a passage from the Bible and preach from it, our current series is from 1 Sanuel. Why not try us out?
I’ve been happily married to Deb since 1988 and have three grown up children, a grandchild and a lazy whippet. We are seeking to spread the good news of Jesus Christ into the village of Nazeing.
