My roots are in Pickering, North Yorkshire and although I have lived in several places since the age of 10, still consider myself to be a ‘Yorkshire lass’.

I’ve lived in Luton, Mobberley, and Preston and then after marrying Malcolm moved to the Wigan area until entering full time ministry. We have 3 grown up children and 5 grandchildren.

I have held various jobs since leaving school, firstly as a bank clerk, then running my own secretarial and word processing business, child minding, being a lecturer in information technology in further education and a school administrator and bursar.

My family is steeped in Methodism going back several generations and my initial call to preach came when I was 17 and a call to ordained ministry in my late 30s.

I trained at Hartley Victoria College and moved to my first appointment in 2001, in Moston, North Manchester. Since 2006 I have been a Superintendent Minister in Prestwich and Radcliffe, Staffordshire Moorlands and Altrincham before moving to Northwich this year.

I enjoy spending time with my family, going to Spain and North Wales and my main hobbies are photography and singing – when I have the time.

I am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us, here in Mid Cheshire in worship and in serving our communities and look forward to meeting you. Janet.

I was born in Midlands province of Zimbabwe. At 14 our family relocated to Mashonaland West province.

God’s call to ministry came into fruition at the age of 17, and at 19 was received and stationed by conference. I went for ministerial training at United Theological College. After that I served MCZ for 23years as minister and leader of key committees.

I am married to Hazel. We have 3 children David, Danielle and Deon.

In 2020, the voice of God continued speaking to us and we set on God’s mission which took us here. We Ministers and the people called Methodists in Mid Cheshire circuit are going to proclaim the good news about God’s love and grace for humanity.

We come clothed in Genesis 1:27, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God, He created him, male and female.” (NSV)

Messengers of Social Justice, Unity and Equality here we come proclaiming inclusivity. My philosophy I present to the world starting with us all, “Leave no one behind and experience everlasting peace, love and joy, leave someone behind loneliness and exhaustion will be your daily meals.”

We have never been in this country but God being our helper we have faith our children regardless of complexion they shall be yours, your grandchildren will be ours regardless country of origin.

The ‘have-nots’ through us shall have, the ‘haves’ and us will share. Let us together spread the Christian golden thread love, relationships and unity.

Teach us we will be willing to learn your ways of doing things. When off or on holiday, where there is music take us there, where there is soccer take us there, do not forget also taking us for spiritual walks.

On hearing my accent, the first question I get asked is, “Where are you from?” I have lived in Britain for over 30 years and originate from Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

I came from the oven to the freezer! However, recent weather as it has been over the past few years, I’m not sure this is the freezer anymore!

I enjoy working alongside people as a team enabling others in their ministry. In this circuit, I am working with toddler groups, messy church, eco-church initiatives, along with various mission and outreach projects.

As a Deacon, I belong to the Methodist Diaconal Order which is a religious order focused by a Rule of Life. By following a rhythm of daily prayer, self-reflection, scripture reading and listening to God I draw strength and balance in life.

For relaxation I enjoy sitting in the back garden, listening to nature while drawing or painting. I also enjoy going to museums, watching movies, and doing anything creative!
