We have just learned that Rev. Brian Dupont, until his retirement minister at Staines Congregational Church and prior to that minister at Latimer Memorial Congregational Church, Beverley, has died after being in failing heath for a number of months. He was in his nineties and the last survivor of the founding group of the Congregational Evangelical Revival Fellowship, which ultimately became the Evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches. Two others of the founding group, Rev. Stan Guest and Rev. Gordon Booth, died in 2013. They were also in their nineties.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Brian’s family at this time of sadness, but we rejoice with them that he is now safe in the loving arms of the Saviour he served so faithfully for so many years.
It is hoped that a full obituary will be published in the Summer issue of this blog’s companion magazine, infellowship. The Spring issue is already at the printers.
