Pointing people to Christ
Pastor Ken Stone
Ken and HBC go back a long way - his father was the pastor of the church from 1959 - 1989.
Having attended HBC all his life, Ken was involved in the Sunday School and Youth work and was also church secretary and a deacon. After many years of working in senior management of an international food distribution company, Ken felt a strong leading to the ministry and in July 2008 he accepted the call to the pastorate at Hemlington.
Ken was converted in his teenage years and he has been faithful follower of Jesus Christ since then. He is a family man who enjoys his pastoral duties, particularly working with the local community and is heavily involved with three school academies.
