Tim Davies

Trustee

Tim, married Tanya on April Fools’ Day 1989. They have four grown up children (Bethan, Anna, Rebekah and Caleb), two sons-in-law (Grant and Elliot) and two grandchildren. Tim was born and brought up in East Africa and much of his life revolved around that part of the world into his early 20s. A Christian family serving the Lord in an African context is where he came to faith in the Lord Jesus.
Following work in business and industry (mainly in the motor industry) Tim has served churches in a variety of settings in rural Oxfordshire and in Sheffield. He was the founding minister at Christ Church Central in 2003 and he’s still there. He has been involved with ANiE and AMiE for some time – praying for a number of years for something like AMiE and ANiE to come into existence. Tim has served the AMiE network since it begun (on the Exec and Board) and has now had the privilege of being close to the action as ANiE has been planned and comes into existence.
Most importantly – the Lord Jesus. Tim is amazed, grateful and moved by his words, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10v45)

Jan Draper

Trustee

Jan was born in Oldham in the early 60’s into a Christian family. She was brought up in her local Anglican Church, was in the choir and Sunday school but remembers a definite occasion when she gave her life to the Lord, when she was about 13. Jan went to university in Leeds to do a degree in Nursing and following a period of clinical work the vast majority of her career has been as an academic working in the Higher Education sector. For the last 12 years Jan worked for The Open University in Milton Keynes, doing the weekly commute (from my home in Beverley, near Hull) and home at weekends. Jan retired in April this year, as she thought God was leading me in a new direction but  wasn’t quite sure what. It turned out to be working part-time as Operations Manager in the Church she goes to – Christ Church Newland in Hull, one of three churches in her local network of which two have recently become AMiE member Churches. God has blessed Jan with three adult children – Elizabeth (33), Isaac (31) and Tamar (27). In her spare time Jan enjoys music and ultrarunning – but not at the same time.

Terri Neal

Trustee

Terri was born in Hull in the early 50’s and has lived there all her life. She is married to Geoff. They met in 1971 as colleagues in the Civil Service in DHSS (DWP now) and married in 1978. They have been blessed with a daughter Rebecca who is married to Isaac.


Terri was sent to Sunday school as a child, as many of her generation were, but it wasn’t until about 1998/99 that she gave her life to Jesus. This as a result of Rebecca asking her to take her to church; being told the Gospel clearly week by week and doing the Christianity Explored course. Praise the Lord!

 

Terri worked in the Civil Service for 37 years until the Lord called her to work as a Pre School Nursery Assistant for St John’s Church Newland in 2007 until her retirement in 2019. She saw a number of parents come to know the Lord as a result of them being free to share their faith with them and their children. What a blessing that was to end her working life with.

Terri has been going to Riverside Church, now Christ Church Riverside, since it’s first day as a church plant. She is forever grateful to God for that vision. She has seen many of her church family come and go and many changes. Terri loves being part of her wonderful church family.
