Q1 What are your roles/ministry here at St Nicholas?
I am the communications officer which basically means I keep the website up to date. I am also involved in the Children’s ministry and will be leading our Godly Play program. Music is also a passion of mine and I occasionally sing with our worship team.
Q2 What other ministry have you undertaken in the past?
I have been a Licensed Lay Minister, Priest’s warden, worship team member and Parish councilor. I have also served on team at Cursillo.
Q3 Do you remember when you became a Christian?
Yes I had two defining moments. One was when I made the conscious decision to become a Christian after a period of study and research. Before this I was an atheist. This was my head knowledge of Jesus. My second defining moment was during a church service where I experienced the Holy Spirit in what can only be described as a flood of love raining down on me. I couldn’t move or speak all I was capable of doing was crying with joy. At this point the Holy Trinity became real for me and so did the power of the Holy Spirit.
Q4 What helps you daily with your walk with Jesus?
Prayer! My ongoing conversation with God is something I enjoy doing throughout the week. Coming to Church to be encouraged and nourished by being a member of one of our small groups.
Q5 Favourite Hymn or worship song
I’m a huge fan of the music from Taize. I love the repetition and prayerfulness of the words and also enjoy singing them in their original language.
Q6 Any last thoughts? (favourite scripture…what are you reading at the moment?…interesting fact about yourself?)
I’m a librarian so always have a number of books on the go. I also love movies. The last film I saw at the cinema was Dr Strange.
