Mel joined the church when it first began, excited by the new vision and drawn to bring the love of God into her workplace in practical ways. Mel worked for the Minster for a year setting up the first CSLI Fellows programme in London in 2011.
Mel currently works as CEO of a small non profit organisation, prior to that she managed a counselling agency supporting young people and has also run her parents’ farm for several years before that.
Mel has been an active Christian since her twenties and has been involved in running Alpha courses and prayer events. Mel currently acts as Chair for Street Angels High Wycombe and is a supporter of the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA). Mel co-runs a Minster community and is passionate about prayer and discipleship.
Mel enjoys the great outdoors, loves travel and can sometimes be spotted on her motorcycle, weather permitting!
Mel is on the Minster Leadership Team (MLT) which was commissioned in January 2020, with the mandate to ‘set and track the spiritual and strategic direction of the church’. The MLT consists of four staff, and six non-staff church family members, all of whom are deeply committed to doing whatever they can to help our church to thrive as a place of encounter with God, discipleship, and mission.
