Anyone is welcome at St Simon’s. We love it that we are a church where all ages get together. Here are some of the people you might meet on a Sunday and a little bit of the story of how they came to be part of the church.
After spending four years at ‘Vicar Factory’ in North London, in 2017 Andy joined St Simon’s as our Curate. He’s married to Annie and they have two lively boys who keep them on their toes! Andy loves spending time with his family, growing veg and is a keen Leicester City fan.
Andy writes: “At St Simon’s we love to show people Jesus from his word, the Bible. I count that the highest privilege because there is no-one better than Jesus Christ!”
Becky has been working at the Southport Christian Book Centre and cafe after finishing her A levels at college. Currently taking a couple of years out from education she has been getting involved with youth-club, Sunday school and Girls Brigade. When she’s not too busy she enjoys being active, getting a little too competitive can often be the case.
Becky writes: “After accepting Jesus into my life I’ve never looked back, it felt like starting a new life with a new me! Having a church family means a lot to me, it’s great to know so many different people who are sharing the same faith as me!”
Barry has been married to Jean for 50 years, and has 2 children and 4 grandchildren that help to keep him young. Having retired from the fire service, you’ll now find him enjoying his fantastic garden.
Barry writes: “40 years ago Jesus knocked on the door of my life. I asked him in. The greatest guest that could ever be is still here, and we’re both happy.”
Alex is married to Peter and they have two young boys and a new baby girl, who keep them very busy. She is a nurse who enjoys the outdoors along with being a Brownie leader.
Alex writes: “I was brought up in a Christian family, but a year ago I truly came to know and love Jesus. We then joined St. Simons where we have been made to feel like part of their family and with their help we are developing our relationship with Christ.”
