Rev. Mike Plant is the minister of Honiton Evangelical Congregational Church.
After his time at university and varies temporary roles, Mike entered ministerial training at the London Theological Seminary.
On graduating Mike became the minister of Cannon Park Congregational Church in Middlesbrough which he fulfilled for twenty one years. In this challenging inner city situation, Mike and his wife Margaret worked among deprived families and asylum seekers showing them in practical ways the love of the Lord Jesus. But it was more than their material needs that were met. The good news of the gospel and of God’s saving grace was always part of their rounded ministry.
Having passed the responsibility of church leadership on to others, Mike became the general secretary of the Evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches (EFCC), which post he held for twelve years.
This national role made extensive use of Mike’s gifts and skills in the support of local churches and ministers and the promotion of the Christian faith.
Mike has now returned to his passion of pastoring a local congregation. We are grateful to God that He has led Mike to Honiton where he is committed to faithfully preaching God’s word and pastoring the congregation.
Mike and Margaret are already showing that, as a team, they are an asset to the wider community of our town.
