My name is Simon and I live in Sheringham with my wife Jemma and our son Elias. In 2010, we relocated to North Norfolk where I worked as the children, youth & families missioner for the Church of England, working in partnership with the local congregations to promote the Christian faith in a positive way. I currently work for Cromer Church as the Head of Mission, with a leadership responsibility for developing their mission strategy with a particular focus on families and men’s ministry. My primary focus is to keep mission at the forefront of church life. I am passionate about mission and helping churches engage with their local communities. I am a strong advocate of Men’s Ministry as part of a holistic approach to reaching and supporting families; empowering all to encounter a loving God.
With a team of volunteers, I run a monthly Who Let The Dads Out? group at Cromer Church. I am also the North Norfolk area coordinator for Christian Vision for Men (CVM) and part of the Diocesan Mission Enablers team. I am excited by what Who Let The Dads Out? is doing nationally in supporting men, encouraging fathers and transforming families. As a Who Let The Dads Out? representative, I’ll endeavour to encourage, support, resource and pray for all those who have a heart for demonstrating God’s love to the wider community. In my spare time, I love spending it with my family, taking coastal walks, running, reading and drinking coffee!
