Death of Pastor David Markham

Death of Pastor David Markham

Jacques Venter (BUC Associate Exec. Secretary)

We were saddened to learn of the death of Pastor David Markham on 10 March 2021. Pastor Markham was born on 21February 1940 in Burton-On-Trent. He married Sylvia Newsam on 26 July 1965 and their union brought about Timothy, Andrew, Jonathan and Philip.

Before entering denominational employment, Pastor Markham worked as a draughtsman apprentice and ward orderly. After completing his studies at Newbold College, he entered the ministry in 1964 in the South England Conference.  In 1979 he accepted a call to the North England Conference where he ministered until 1982.

Sadly, Pastor Markham passed away peacefully at home on 10March 2021. He leaves behind his wife, four sons and 14 grandchildren.

We now look forward to Christ's soon return and that glorious resurrection day.
