Church Family, News, Tributes


It is with great sadness we report on the passing away of our dear friend and brother, Adrian Gwynne-James. Adrian was a member of Golden Valley Church before marrying Chinese Church Pastor, Esther Ho, in 2011.

AdrianAdrian passed away on January 2nd, after a lengthy but courageous battle with cancer. He will be deeply missed by family and friends. He is remembered as someone who was always genuine, kindhearted, and deeply grounded in his faith. His contagious sense of humour will also not be forgotten.

The funeral was held today in Leicester Chinese Christian Church, where many friends and relatives gathered together to honour and celebrate Adrian’s life, to draw near to God and receive comfort, and to say “goodbye” to a dear friend. It was conducted by Pastor Wes Boxall and Hui-Pak Wong, and translated into Cantonese. Tributes were given by Adrian’s late wife  and sister.

As Christians we know that death is not the end, but all who pass away in Christ, are immediately in His eternal presence, where we will be reunited together. This brings great hope and comfort.

Our continued prayers are with his family.

  1. Very sad and shocked to know that Adrian has went to be with the Lord. He was a wonderful chap and a caring friend. During my time in the UK, he offered great spiritual support. He used to come and pick me up at my place in Broadway (Worcs) and brought me to many spiritual meetings including the Sunday services at Golden Valley and Vale of Evesham churches. I’ve had the privilege to attend his wedding in Leicester. Little did I know that he had to go through this suffering. Although it’s a big loss, I have cent percent assurance that we’ll meet him on the other shore. God bless Esther and Adrian’s mother.

  2. I knew Adrian at St. John’s College Ministry where he studied as an independent student. We were in the same fellowship group. It is with great sadness that I learnt of his passing. He was kind, quirky and loveable at college with a wonderful sense of humour and generous spirit . May he rest in peace
