Following a career in teaching, I became the joint leader of New Life Fellowship, Plymouth in 2005. I have Chaired ‘Churches together in Plymouth’ since 2007 and was ordained in 2011. That was also the year I helped organise a ROC South-West launch in October of 2011 and have been on the Steering Group for the region ever since. I am passionate about churches working in unity for their town or city. I sit on a number of Civic Boards representing the Faith community in Plymouth and have the privilege of regular meetings with Police, Council and Business leaders. In 2015 I began coordinating a Plymouth ROC Family Mentoring project. The towns in the region are since developing their own schemes.
