Tributes paid to former Norwich Elim church minister
Tributes have been paid to former Norwich Elim church minister Gerry Turner, who died on August 1, aged 71, after a six-month journey with cancer.
Gerry and his wife Linda ministered at Elim Church on Trory Street in Norwich for 17 years and he retired just over five years ago.
Nick Whipps, Pastor of Norwich Elim Church, said: “Whilst we mourn the loss of a much-loved friend and pastor we equally acknowledge Gerry is more alive today than he’s ever been in the presence of his Lord and Saviour. We encourage you to uphold Linda and the family in your prayers at this time of great loss.”
Gerry was a proud father of Sarah, grandfather to Sophia and Henry, son of Morton and brother to Caroline.
A service of thanksgiving will take place at Norwich Elim Church, Trory Street, Norwich, NR2 2RH at 2pm on Friday August 16.
“All are welcome to attend,” said Nick. “However we encourage those wishing to travel by car (who are more fit and able) to make good use of public car parking in the area, so immediate family and those with limited mobility can benefit from the parking at the church.”
