My name is Katie Devany, I am married to Dave and have 2 grown up children, Joanna who’s 21 and studying at University of Manchester and Nathan, 19 who is in between discipleship and evangelism courses in Perth, Australia with Youth With A Mission, after taking A levels last summer.
I am excited to be the new church administrator, although I don’t think I could have envisaged quite what the first 3 months (in lockdown) would look like!
I have attended GFM almost all my life, Sunday School, Children’s work, youth, been baptised, married all at GFM! I was brought up with a Christian background but only started regularly attending church when I was about 8/9 years old. When I was a young teen I had the opportunity to attend a summer camp led by Revd Victor Trinder (first Superintendent of the FMC in the UK) and there saw young people who were excited to know Jesus and I became serious about my commitment to God.
I have trusted in God always since then and although life hasn’t always run smoothly, I have been so blessed by the solid teaching I have received here at Garstang – it’s a church and church family I love.
