I became a Christian while studying Natural Sciences at university when I was dragged along to a discussion group by a friend. A turning point came when we looked at what happened the first Good Friday and Easter Day. Eventually I found it took more "faith" to believe that Jesus was not who he claimed to be than accept his claims about himself. Rather falteringly, I started out on what has become a life of following Jesus Christ. I became a Licensed Lay Minister (aka LLM, aka Reader) in 2013 and, amongst other things, look after the home groups in the benefice. I was one of the churchwardens at All Saints, Mattishall, for some years, but am now aiming to concentrate on some other areas of church life, e.g. "Who Let The Dads Out?" (our dads and kiddies group, which runs once a month) and some other, more specific LLM-related areas..
I was born in Hellesdon near Norwich and, apart from a gap year and university, have lived and worked in Norfolk all my life, working for a chemical company for 24 years and, since then, running my own (one man) business in IT.
