Rev David Perkins - Minister
I'm Rev. David, married to Chris, and Dad to Judi and Alun.
I have been in the ministry for 30 years and am really delighted to be working with the folk at Wootton Bassett, as together we seek God’s will.
It’s a great church with a real heart for the community and a passion for Christ, for worship and for witness. My ministry priorities are to teach and equip Gods people to know their faith and to be confident in how they live it out.
Kevin Magner - Youth Worker
I am the youth worker for Royal Wootton Bassett Methodist Church and St Mary's Church in Purton. I met my wife Kim in Bristol and we got married in the summer of 2016
I am originally from near Southampton; I read Law at university and then studied at post graduate level in Bristol. This led to working as a paralegal in various capacities for a year before reassessing what I should be doing in life.
During my time in Bristol I was volunteering to help run the youth group in my church. After a period of prayer & reflection, I embarked on various applications for jobs that involved working with young people. I was amazed at how quickly God opened up doors and I was soon interviewed for the position here in Wiltshire.
I am truly excited for God to use me here to share His message and look forward to seeing what God has in store for me, as well as for the young people in Wootton Bassett and Purton.
Hi everyone! – I am Kathy Lane, the new families’ worker; I officially took up my post from 2nd January 2018.
I am very excited taking up this job; I have lots of experience with children of varying ages, and enjoy working with people.
I felt called away from pre-school in 2013 to go to Moorlands Bible College, and I completed a degree in Applied Theology with Family & Community Studies in 2016.
After this I was asking God what to do next, and after much prayer we finally moved to Swindon in March 2017. After a challenging journey last year, I felt God prompt me to look at the Christian job sites again and this post pinged up!
My heart felt excited as I read the description, and after praying alone and with my husband Matt, I applied and got the post! I am looking forward to getting to know you all, but it will take time! Please feel free to approach me anytime…
My main focus at the start will be Puddleducks, building connections with schools, and the children’s and youth work on Sundays.
