I’m Josh, married to my beautiful wife Alanna, and we have two gorgeous children. We recently moved from Wiltshire, England, after pastoring a church there. I love reading the Bible, having a good chat over decent coffee, cooking curries, and watching films. Whenever possible, I also enjoy watching and playing cricket and tennis.
I am grateful to God for the opportunity to pastor at Woody. This role involves providing pastoral care, sharing God’s vision, and encouraging His people to follow the path that God wants us to take. I want us to continue to glorify God by being faithful stewards of all that is entrusted to us and by demonstrating the love of Christ Jesus to everyone we encounter.
I would love to connect with you and do life together, so please get in touch if you would like that!
Children, Youth & Families Worker
“Hi! I’m Laura married to Gary and we have 3 children, Theo, Oscar and Olivia. I Came to Woody in 1996 when I became a christian as a teenager then later led ‘XCell’, our youth homegroup. I also qualified as a nursery nurse and worked as a nanny then in a private nursery for 11 years. In 2015 I felt called to work as the children and youth team leader at Woody and started in 2017. I feel strongly that church should be a safe and fun place for children, I also feel we should serve and love families and children in our community. My role is to oversee the Children and youth work and our parent and toddler group on a Wednesday afternoon.”

I have been involved at Woody since 1995 and have been a deacon and church secretary since September 2006. For general enquiries or Hall Hire you can contact me in the church office on Mondays or Thursdays.”
Social Media and Content Co-Ordinator
“Hey! I’m Luke, and I work part-time as the Social Media & Content Coordinator for Woody (sadly I don’t have a fancy badge yet). I’ve been hanging out with the church since 2018, and it’s been a place God used to help me grow in my Christian faith, and also the giftings He’s placed on my life.
You’ll find me working with cameras, editing, having a laugh, and connecting with people from all over the place. If you see me around, come say hi! I’d love to meet you, and talk about what God is doing.“
