I am an in-house lawyer for a Christian charity, the Ascension Trust, whose best-known initiative is Street Pastors. Singles span all adult age ranges in our church communities and are varied in their singleness. In wider society 40% of adults are single. Perhaps one of the most overlooked groups in our churches it is important that single people feel welcomed, valued and included in our churches. #OneisaWholeNumber
I work as a Property Night Manager, at an Independent Retirement Development. I am passionate about singles, because I would like to see the singles thrive during their single life. To be able to live a life that is fulfilling, despite being single. I would love to continue to be a part of this ministry to provide solutions, safe space to listen to suggestions and do my best to support the single people, with encouragement and social activities to live a healthy, happy Christian life, whilst waiting for the gift of marriage.
I am passionate about Singles and Singles Ministry because as I've transitioned into adulthood, and experienced good as well as bad relationships. I've found the whole concept of dating frustrating especially for the more mature woman such as myself and I felt that I needed to move from having a worldly mindset about dating to address the frustration and anxieties people like myself, feel and have about dating. I want to help others understand that dating can actually be fun if you have the right mindset even during the current pandemic season it's still not impossible to find love if you really want it at any age. I want to help people prepare themselves whollistically and become more confident in stepping out of their comfort zone into the world of dating.
