We welcome Rev Helen Lambert to her new position as Minister at Trinity Rawdon.
Born in Thorner, Helen now has her heart firmly in Rawdon, having lived here for the past 25 years.
She is no stranger to Trinity either — she began worshipping there some 12 years ago, during which time she received her calling to preach, to study and then to train for the Baptist Ministry.
Earlier this 2017, Helen finally brought a 25-year career as a Drama Teacher at Garforth Academy to an end in order to serve this community as a Minister. Her training for ministry took place at Northern Baptist College in Manchester, where she will continue to study for an MA in Contextual Theology.
With her Ordination on 3rd June 2017 and her Induction on 9th September 2017, Helen reaches the end of a long and extraordinary journey and sees another road stretching out before her. She has an amazing story to tell about the transforming power of the Holy Spirit!
She is already well-known in the area she loves and desires to serve. Her vision is that our Church will once again become a hub for the community, where we will be able to share the love of God with all we meet. For her, "Church is a human connection of love, not a building... a lifestyle, not a weekly activity... an act of service, not a service to attend."
Let's all wish her well on this new journey and Rev Derek Allan too, whom she replaces and who sets off into the sunset of retirement!
