I've been a reader since 1987 - originally in Woking and now at St John's. I came to Ipswich with my wife Jenny to work for BT following redundancy. Retirement has allowed me time to continue serving God as a reader, as coordinator of the small groups and to enjoy my pastimes of bell ringing and woodwork.
Andrew Taylor, Reader
Owen Thurtle, Reader
Owen has only just trained as a Reader. Up until recently he was a local doctor and perhaps that is why he has a particular interest in the relationship of Science and Christianity.
John Gillett, Reader
Pete Collison, Evangelist
Dawn Gillett, Licensed Lay Evangelist
Dawn has been a member of St Andrews church for about 18 years. She completed training with the diocese and was licensed as a Lay Evangelist in 2011. Dawn lives locally with her husband John, and works part time for a healthy lifestyle service. In her spare time she likes running, knitting, and visiting her three grown up children who now live in various parts of the country!
I am the church children and families worker. I look after the work that our church does with children on Sundays and during the week in church and local schools. I love talking with children about Jesus and listening to their experiences and ideas. I am married with two grown up children, but still enjoy playing with playdough and glue.
