Roger Forster, the deeply loved founder and apostle of Ichthus went to be with the Lord on Wednesday 17th January 2024.  He passed away peacefully at home.  We celebrate his incredible and inspirational life of service to our Lord Jesus, as an evangelist, theologian, pastor, mentor and most importantly, devoted disciple of Jesus. We also deeply feel his loss, and mourn with his wife Faith, his children and grandchildren. He was a father in the faith to thousands of people in the UK and all over the world, and he ‘ran the race’ right until the end.

There will be a small funeral for Roger in February for family, close friends and local Ichthus members.  There is limited space so this is an invite-only event.

Everyone is invited to the Thanksgiving Service on 4th May 2024.  Please see below for details of this service and to book tickets.
