Independents in ENGLAND
THE END OF AN ERA…….
Most Worshipful County Grand Master of England ,
BROTHER STEVEN BELL 08-05-1954 to 04-06-2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the calling home of the County Grand Master of England Brother Steven Bell. Stevie as he was affectionately known, was a life long Orangeman, and was committed to the Protestant cause. He was instrumental in forming the Independent Orange Institution within England and held the high office of County Grand Master longer than any other. Stevie led the Institution with both pride and dignity, and was a tremendous ambassador for the Orange Cause.
He will be sadly missed by all of his Orange Brethren and Sisters throughout the United Kingdom, We assure his dear mother Doris of our prayerful support, along with his sister Linda, and Brother Leslie and the extended family circle. We trust that the Lord will give you all, beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garments of praise for the spirit of heaviness ( Isaiah 61 v 3 )
The scriptures give great hope for those who have placed their trust in Christ Jesus for forgiveness of sin. It will therefore be of great comfort that Steven had professed his faith in Christ on the 12th December 2012.
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge shall give me at that day and not to me only but unto all them also that love his appearing" 2nd Timothy 4 v 7,8
