Banbridge Road Summer Assistant to continue theological studies

Raymond McKibbenRaymond McKibben, a second year ministry student at Union Theological College in Belfast, has been summer assistant to the Rev Gary Trueman at Banbridge Road Presbyterian Church, Dromore since the middle of June and will leave next Sunday (17th September) to continue his theological studies. Stoneyford man Raymond is married to Mandy and they have four children Raymond (15), Rachel (12), Paul (11) and Jonathan (6).

In an interview last week, Raymond said, I have gained a lot of experience during my three months summer placement at Banbridge Road and have thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship and friendliness of the Rev Gary Trueman and the entire congregation during my time there.  Taking my first service with the local Member of Parliament in the congregation was a daunting experience and one I will never forget.
