TWO MINUTES WITH...
What are your main responsibilities within KCC?
As one of the elders, I oversee a number of areas in church life including our midweek
groups - community groups. I love doing anything pastoral and am responsible for our
new members' course 'The Starting Point' and discipleship development. I regularly meet
up with people to mentor them in their walk with God.
I am also involved in a number of local groups which are seeking to bless the town and
love Hatfield.
How long have you been a Christian?
A long time! I don't remember a specific moment when I said "Yes" to Jesus. This used
to bother me but now I realise that it is God's grace that I have always known Him.
During my teenage years, my faith began to have an increasing impact on my life and
was notably strengthened at university when I was filled with the Holy Spirit for the first
time.
What do you do to relax?
I enjoy watching films, taming my garden, swimming and spending time with friends and family – though not all at the same time! I have also been known to put on some jazz, pick
up a book and sample a glass of red wine.
What is your favourite film?
I like most films that have some good action especially science-fiction - those that
involve "boldly going where no-one has gone before" and superhero movies - those with people in bright costumes and superpowers defending the world from baddies.
What is your favourite takeaway?
Now that is a tough one! I love so many different sorts of food. However, I tend to opt for Chinese because there is a Chinese takeaway place just around the corner from us.
