Uplifting take on life after death from Sidmouth author Allan Bowers

IT was a busy weekend for Sidmouth Methodist, the Reverend Allan Bowers.

On Saturday he launched his latest religious book, and on Sunday he celebrated 65 years of Methodist ministry.

His book, Treasure in Heaven, was launched at Sidmouth Methodist church hall on Saturday morning and will be available from Paragon Books and The Mustard Seed, priced £5.95.

Although he retired in 1987, Allan has continued his ministry as a Methodist supernumerary, a prolific writer of hymns, author of Christian books and a well-known Christian columnist in the Sidmouth Herald.

His new book was inspired by his late wife, Betty, and gives an uplifting view of life after death.

He said: “My book tells the reader of the joy of life lived with Christ in this world, and even more wonderful, the joy of a new life with Christ in heaven.”
