Andy's journey

I grew up in a Christian household, on a farm in Cumbria. Although I believed in God from an early age, when I turned 18 I really experienced God taking hold of my life. I became greatly convicted of my need for Jesus and gave my life over to him. From that day I have had a great desire “to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me." 

Tina's journey

I trusted in Jesus at age 9, but in my late teens realised the need to submit my all to God, continually. I felt a strong sense of call to serve God, but had no idea what this would entail. I trained as a nurse, and met Andy whilst part way through this.

We share a deep love for Jesus and long to see people come to know him and mature in their faith. We married in 2005 and got involved in the local Free Methodist Church, with a growing passion for God’s work in and through the Church. Encouraged by our Pastor at the time, Andy undertook a degree in Applied Theology and spent time as a Trainee Pastor. Following ordination in 2015, Andy worked as an Associate Pastor, and in 2017 we felt God clearly lead us to Garstang.

We have continued to be immersed together in serving the Church, alongside raising bouncy boys. Tina is now studying Practical Theology part-time with a desire to be equipped for life and ministry, whatever that looks like! In 2019, she became a ‘Local Ministerial Candidate,’ to explore this growing call. We are privileged to serve together with others on the Pastoral Team.

It is so good to be a part of what God is doing in Garstang and beyond!
