Andy first came to the church in 2013 and started off as our youth worker. As Andy developed and explored church ministry he became the Associate Minister in 2015. Andy flourished in this role and felt God was calling him into full-time ministry, so the Church after careful consideration, prayer and discussion decided in 2016 to call him as our minister.
Andy is keen to enable people within the Church to develop gifts and talents with which they then can go on to build God’s kingdom and to deeply impact the community.
He loves Epworth and the surrounding villages having lived here since he was 6! Having grown up in the area, Andy has a heart for people here and to see God reaching people’s lives. As well as overseeing the church as Minister, Andy works with our young people. He is particularly excited about seeing what God does through them and loves seeing youngsters engage with a God who loves all people no matter how young or old!
