Gordon and his wife Jill live in Church Road and have two adult children, Francis & Claire. He has held a number of positions of Christian leadership, including co-leading a home-group, leading a worship group, PCC membership and acting as a trustee of several Christian organisations, including helping to coordinate Fusion’s local mission work in the Wheatley area over the last 15 years. He has been part of the WCC leadership team since the church was established in 2014 and during those early years has been hugely blessed by the friendship and support of others on the team and by all that God has done amongst us. At times it has been challenging but always a huge privilege to be a small part of building God’s kingdom in this community. Gordon is currently chair of Wheatley Area Churches. In his work-life he has held senior management positions in business and developed an interest in how we should live out our faith in a secular work environment.
