A New Way of Living

I head up the Church Life Department. I have two grown up daughters, Louise and Joanne. I have
recently retired and am looking forward to being a volunteer at the Commonwealth Games this
summer and to becoming a ‘shared care’ foster carer.

I enjoy encouraging people in their Christian walk and finding opportunities to connect with one
another, particularly in areas of service. My passion is to see that ‘everyone is cared for by
someone’ and that we would be a welcoming church where no-one in our church family feels

The Church Life Department is a busy department which includes pastoral care support, several
organisations and groups, and the tea and coffee rota. I am thankful to God for all of the ministry
leaders and helpers who take responsibility for each area of church life.
