We have received the sad news today that Rex Moore has lost his battle with cancer and has now gone home to be with Jesus.
As many of you are aware, since being diagnosed with cancer of lung lining at the end of 2016, Rex has been deteriorating slowly but his passing at 7:30 this morning was still a surprise to us all.
Rex became a Christian in 2010 when he attended our Alpha Course and was fully involved in Grace Church from then onwards, serving in any way he could until, well into his 70's, his deteriorating health stopped him.
Rex and Eira were married last year and they then moved to the Isle of Wright, but I know that many friends from Grace Church have kept in touch and visited them since then.
Eira has told today us that Rex has been very close to the Lord over these last few weeks, his faith has continued to grow and he was at peace in his heart.
No plans for the funeral are available yet, but we will let you know the details when they are available.
In the mean time, please remember Eira in your prayers over the next few weeks.
