We have a dedicated staff team at CMJ UK who work alongside a team of volunteers to help bring the good news of Messiah to the Jewish population here in the UK. With a mixture of staff working from the CMJ UK office, making visits across the UK, or in Jewish communities, they all play a vital role in carrying out the mandate we believe God has given us.

I am from a Jehovah’s Witness background in Shropshire and was at a young age when I became curious of different ways of worshipping. My father, an atheist, accompanied me at our local Anglican and Methodist churches. Even at the age of 6 years old, I loved the Anglican Church. I went to the Anglican after school group and loved learning more about Jesus even though I didn’t understand any of it. 7 years later I was a youth member at the local Evangelical Church, and this became my home and my family. I took the plunge and became a follower of Jesus making childhood and the teen years extremely difficult.

By God’s grace I have given up 7 addictions from my college years and I am now living totally for Christ in the best way I can. I am blessed with the gifts of music and dance and I love to worship Yeshua in this way. Through these gifts my love for Israel has come. I joined a messianic dance group in Shropshire and my curiosity started! My love for Israel and for the Hebrew language grew but, I was never in the right place to go ahead and do what I loved.

My time at Lee Abbey Fellowship, for 2 and half years was the point when God was going to work. I was not prepared for this, at least in human terminology but, as usual, God had other ideas. My relationship with Him changed and my heart changed too. God had called me to work with a Jewish charity - I just didn’t know it at that time. God had confirmed this during my time at Lee Abbey and here I am now.

Being a Midlands girl I am so pleased that I am living in Nottinghamshire and loving it! May God’s blessing be always on my life and on those who I come in contact with?
