I am married to John and between us we have several children, grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Now retired, most of my working life was around admin/ office work.

I have been going to Emmanuel URC since i was 3 years old when my mum took me to Sunday school. 40+ years later & I’m still here. I have so many happy memories of Sunday school and eventually I became a Junior Church Leader myself for a number of years. I now promote  Fairtrade products on Emmanuel’s Traidcraft stall, whilst also managing the Good Earth Café. I have been an Elder for 11 months and in my free time I enjoy listening to music & cooking.

Angela Jones

I have been a member at Emmanuel for twenty years and love it there!  I find it welcoming and inclusive and we do our best to be outward looking to the community we are in.  My interests are Greek, Roman and Egyptian history and I love reading.  Favourite authors are Terry Pratchett and Lindsey Davis.  My husband and I are also involved in grandparent care for our busy daughter.  It keeps us young.  Come to Emmanuel and see what we are all about!.
