Mr. Tom Cross
My name is Tom Cross. I have lived in Mattishall for over 30 years with my wife, Susan. We have two grown up children who were born and grew up here, but have since flown the nest. I felt called to be a Licensed Lay Minister in 2005. It is an honour and a privilege to preach God's word and it is something I really enjoy. Being involved in PCC meetings, Messy Church, mentoring other Licensed Lay Ministers in training, taking funerals, co-leading a home group and doing some pastoral visits amongst other things, I find the role both varied and rewarding. I am a firm believer in the importance of mutual encouragement in our Christian lives. It is good to have a rector who encourages people to find their vocations and be part of a staff team which works well together and supports each other in our ministries.
