It is with great sadness that I am writing to let you know that Zygmunt Galaszkiewicz vel Mlynarski lost his fight with terminal cancer at the age of 54 on Sunday 18th March.
Zygmunt has been a good friend for over 20 years. I first met him in Szczecin when the church there had just started. He always showed a great love for God’s word and was one of the first to study at the Bible School there, eventually becoming its administrator. Zygmunt had a real pastoral heart and for several years led the church in Szczecin as the pastoral elder.
About five years ago he moved to Manchester and quickly found his role in serving the Body of Christ, particularly caring for the elderly, homeless and destitute asylum seekers. His happy countenance, kindness and lovely Polish accent meant he was loved by many.
