By Rev Dr David Steers
‘When in doubt, steam towards the sound of the guns.’
These were the words with which the Rev Tom Banham commenced his ministry here in November 1975. It was the starting point of his statement of principles and objects when he was installed as minister here by the Presbytery of Antrim. I have no doubt that a good number of those here today will have been present on that occasion, held, not in the church for that was not fit to hold a service at the time, but in the Central Hall.
