A NEW church minister was welcomed into the community on Saturday.

The Rev Duncan Goldie was inducted at the United Reformed Church in Melbourn at a special service.

He has been a minister for the past 14 years after completing his training at Westminster College in Cambridge in 1992.

He will be responsible for the churches within the linked pastorate of Bassingbourn, Buntingford, Fowlmere, Thrip-low, Great Chishill and Melbourn United Reformed Church.

Born in Birmingham, the Rev Goldie has moved from Gloustershire to take up the post.

He said: "I'm looking forward to working with the community and supporting good things going on such as the Chernobyl children.

"I want to add to the life of local people and build the churches up in the area."

The former design engineer said he moved into the ministry when he thought he was being called by God.

"The feeling just didn't go away," he said.
