Whether you’ve been with us for years or are brand new, we want everyone to be part of the team! But here are a few people we think you should know about...
Hi! I arrived in September as the new minister of Christchurch Earlsfield. I’m married to Becca and we have three boys all at a local primary school. I became a Christian aged 20 at university whilst studying Natural Sciences. I first worked at a church as a children’s and youth worker in Wandsworth before training for ordination at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford. For the last five years I have served as curate and associate vicar at St Luke’s Wimbledon Park. I’m excited to join the church family at Christchurch Earlsfield and can’t wait to see what the Lord will do among us and through us. When I’m not at church or with my family I enjoy getting out on my road bike and love having Richmond Park on our doorstep. I hope to see you soon at CCE.
Prayer for CCE
I pray that our church would be used to share the good news of Jesus in Wandsworth and beyond and that we’d keep growing in our love and encouragement of each other.
I’m Melissa and I do admin for Christ Church @ All Saints. I first visited this church for a carol service in 2011 as the guest of a work colleague. Fast forward a few years and I’m now a Christian myself and studying this year how to teach the Bible to others. Although I heard the Gospel as a teenager, I didn’t understand it fully until I read the Bible with other Christians in my thirties. It then took me longer still to realise that it applied to me personally and that I needed to respond to what Jesus did on the cross. God was very patient with me and softened my heart along the way. He has also placed some amazing people in my path over the years who have prayed for me and taught me. I hope you’ll find this church as friendly and welcoming as I did!
Hi I’m Nush (short for Anouska) and I’m a ministry assistant at Christ Church at All Saints. I’ve lived in Earlsfield, Wandsworth since 2005, am married to Matt, have 2 children Joel and Phoebe and a spaniel called Daisy. I’m a former languages teacher, and am now studying part-time at Cornhill, keen to know Jesus better and to teach God’s word to people more faithfully. I became a Christian when I was 23 during a time of searching for answers to life’s big questions. I am so grateful God put my sister and other people in my life who witnessed to me about Jesus. I grew up Catholic but had never read the bible for myself before and it was whilst reading a gospel account of Jesus’ life that I believed that Jesus was who he said he was and that the Bible was true. I am passionate about talking to people about Jesus. I love to cook, play music, sing and hang out with friends and family – preferably all at the same time!
I’ve been with the church for a year and as of 2020 September, became a Ministry Trainee alongside the Co-Missions network. Growing up to my adult years, I held to a religious pride and was under the assumption that I both knew God and was in right relationship to him. God in his gracious character did a great work of tearing down those beliefs through; evangelists, the courage of a Women who approached me to share with me the gospel one night & YouTube sermons signposting me to Christ. I came to an understanding of my need to be saved, to trust the person and work of Jesus. Since, God has kept me, displays his glory continually to me & leads me. After being saved, I had a desire to share the gospel message and did so with my local church while at university. With a desire alike, with the affirmation of those whom are mature in the faith & by faith I decided to take the step to become a ministry trainee. By God’s grace my hope is to grow in my understanding of God’s word, learn to handle it and teach it while growing in discernment of God’s will for my life.
