The Revd Stan Woods: 1936-2016
Stan Woods, Pastor to many, went to be with the Lord on 26 October. Many have said how they appreciated and 'enjoyed' his funeral service which was a very fitting tribute to a life well lived and in service to his Lord. More than 300 attended the service from far and wide, including a coachload from Canon Street Memorial Baptist Church, Birmingham, who also ministered in song.
A tribute was given by his sons Bob and David covering his life, which included four pastorates, missionary work in South America and working with the Yorkshire Baptist Association, including his Bible Times exhibition. Of course there were plenty of snippets of family life and a feel for his, and the family's, sense of humour.
It goes without saying that Stan impacted so many lives not only here in the UK, but worldwide. He had a real Pastor's heart with the passion of an evangelist.
After 61 years of marriage Stan is survived by his wife Brenda, two sons, four grandchildren and six great grand children.
