Igniting the Church to be like Jesus and change the world

Andy & Faye Harris

Harrises 2015In the summer of 2007 Andy and Faye felt called to move from Devon to Corby, Northamptonshire to help set up a new church, called Hope Church.

The time since then has been an exciting adventure as the church has quickly grown to some hundreds and now is meeting on two sites on a Sunday.

For many years Andy has worked in administration in the local council. He has just started a new job in administration for Church Growth Trust which aims to offer property and trusteeship services to independent churches. It also seeks ways to help churches to grow by combining the work of ensuring that they have good governance with inspiring and equipping them for future growth.

Following her degree in Religious studies Faye worked for Youth For Christ, for three years leading a team of five people pioneering a rural schools work and youth work initiative for 'Connect' in Devon. This project brought together many of the smaller churches across the denominations to fund and run young people going into schools to show the love of God in practical ways. 

As well as being a mum she is the Youth Pastor in the church and is on the leadership team. She is also involved more widely in youth work in the area.  Over the last couple of years their church and others have been involved locally in setting up Street Pastors, Christians against Poverty and a Food Bank.

Please pray...

  • that Andy can settle into his new job at Church Growth Trust and can get up to speed on all the technical side of the job quickly;
  • for Faye as she juggles her various responsibilities and that she may continue to inspire the many young people who look to her for leadership;
  • for energy for all the demands on their time as the church grows and that they may together have a good work-life balance.
