The morning service on Sunday 3rd September 2017 included a special section in which Matt Lillicrap was both ordained into full time ministry for the Gospel and inducted to serve as Assistant Pastor at Eden Baptist Church.

Matt was asked a number of questions about his faith and his ministry by each of Eden’s elders in turn, and prayed for by representatives of both the elders and of Oakhill Theological College in London where he undertook his formal training.

The morning’s sermon was preached by Dan Strange, Acting Principal at Oakhill on the passage 2 Corinithians 6:1-13 with the title "The Cost of Service".
