"how can they call on the one of whom they have not heard... without someone preaching to them? (Romans 10 v4)

The Trust was set up in memory of Clive West following his death in August 2014. The Trust is comprised of eight members who have had a close association with Clive’s ministry. They are anxious to continue Clive’s vision and passion for teaching and preaching the word of God particularly within the Church of Ireland context. In order to fulfil this aspiration, the trustees decided to do two things:

1. To host an annual lecture on a biblical/theological subject close to Clive’s heart;

2. To set up a fund to provide finance and support for excellent Biblical and theological training for those called by God to ministry within the Church of Ireland.

The launching by Harold Miller, Bishop of Down and Dromore, took place in February 2016 in All Saints’ Church, Belfast. The Archbishop of Armagh and the Bishop of Connor also took part. The lecture on “The faith at the heart of the book of common prayer” was given by the Rev Dr Ashley Null. The evening was chaired by Trevor Johnston, chairman of the trustee group. Many of you were with us on that occasion and have continued to show your interest and support. We, as trustees, are anxious to thank you and inform you about the progress and activity of the Trust since then.
