"Pastor Leaving Roker.
Mr Sackett's Call
The Rev. B. H. Sackett, of Roker Congregational Church, is leaving Sunderland at the end of September to become minister at Sowerby Bridge, Halifax.
This announcement is made by Mr. Sackett in the current issue of "The Congregational Monthly," in which he states that it was not until after a great deal of thought he decided to go.
"The more I thought about it," he continues, "the stronger became the urge to accept. Apart from the unanimity of the 'call' and the greatness of the opportunity at Sowerby Bridge, I have felt for a few months that a change of miinister at Roker would be in the best interests of the church.
"Five years of the same mind in the case of the first pastorate, unless, of course, the personality and the circumstances are exceptional, seems to me to be long enough."
Mr Sackett resumed his duties on Sunday after two months' illness."
