After a career in BT and then corporate roles in two national charities (Methodist Homes and The National Autistic Society) I moved, in my retirement, with my wife to enjoy life with family in central Witney. We moved from a village in Leicestershire where I had had a leading role in the Baptist Church for nearly 30 years and where I had been trying strenuously to bring unity amongst the churches, so was really pleased to find the strength of unity that exists between the Witney churches. We worship at Witney Community Church and I was delighted to have been able to take up the role of Verger in December 2021.
