The Minister

Our minister is the Rev John Thackway, who was born in Ilfracombe, North Devon, in 1950. From an unchurched background, the Lord called him by grace through the ministry of a local evangelical church. The call to the ministry soon followed, and after graduating from the Bible Training Institute, Glasgow, he became pastor of Maryport Street Baptist Chapel, Devizes, Wiltshire. Married to Margaret in 1977, they have four children and seven grandchildren.

In 1991, they moved to his present charge here at Holywell Evangelical Church. John Thackway has also been editor of the Bible League Quarterly since 1993. He is Vice-Chairman of the General Committee of the Trinitarian Bible Society and a committee member of the Christian Worship Publishing Trust.  He is also a visiting lecturer at the London Reformed Baptist Seminary and has spoken at a number of conferences in the UK and abroad. Mr. Thackway is also a signatory to the Affirmation 2010.
