Helen and her husband Chris have been worshipping at St Paul’s since they moved to Slough in 1979. She has been involved with many aspects of life at St Paul’s, including teaching in Sunday School, and catering for the Youth Weekend.

Following a sense that God was calling her into ministry, she was accepted for training for Lay Ministry (Lay Reader) in 2012 and was licensed within the Oxford Diocese in November 2014. She now preaches and leads services, assists with prayer ministry before and during the 10.30am service, leads the Bible study at the Tuesday Fellowship group, and takes part in the Thursday homegroup which meets at her house.

Helen works part-time as an Optometrist, and she and Chris have three daughters, and two grandsons.
