Melvin Tinker

The Editor writes: We are sorry to report the death of Melvin Tinker early this morning, from a particularly virulent form of cancer. Melvin was Vicar of St John’s Newland, Hull, for many years, and known more widely as a speaker and author. In recent years he developed a unique prophetic analysis of Western secularism, saw its influence on the church, and expressed the urgent need for renewed faithfulness and commitment to biblical truth. This led to him leading his congregation out of the Church of England, into a new Anglican jurisdiction under Gafcon.

I also knew him as a warm hearted friend with a great sense of humour. He will be sadly missed, especially by his wife Heather and his children and grandchildren.

Melvin’s son Michael writes:

“During the night dad went to be with his Lord. He was comfortable, listening to David Suchet reading the book of Revelation. Mum fell asleep and when she awoke, the book had been finished, and Dad was with the one whom we see so gloriously in those pages, and whom Dad now sees face to face.”


Further tributes will follow shortly.
