    Margaret's first recollection of Peter was when as a young child Peter purchased a record of ‘Blessed Assurance’. On the flip side of the record was the cowboy song ‘High...  more
  • A good man and an encourager. A wise reformed head with a warm reformed heart. Someone who really got going in his sermons. Will never forget his statement once "there is enough power in temptation to make a man tremble". He meant it, and we...  more

    In my memories of Mr Golding (as we always called him and referred to him), I’ve decided to concentrate on our visits to him and Mrs Golding after their retirement to Nailsea in 1998. Within a year or two of that, we were surprised and delighted to be...  more

    I am forever indebted to Peter Golding, who brought me to faith through his gospel preaching, baptised me, and revealed to me the truths of God's word through his expository sermons. Although he could sometimes be fiery in the pulpit, in person he was...  more

    My first memory of my Uncle Peter ( or maybe it was a memory of the story that was retold often...) was when Liz and I were 3 or 4 years old, sitting in the back of a car and he ' thought' he saw me poking out my tongue at cousin Liz. Slightly surprised ...  more
