Claire Everett - Deacon for Fellowship
Claire is married to Rob and they have two girls, Sophie and Katie. They live in St Ives and started coming to Bluntisham Baptist Church in 2009, where they were touched by the warm and friendly welcome they received.
She enjoys being part of a number of groups at church including Sunday school, the worship team, Little Fishes and Space. In her spare time she enjoys reading, playing and teaching piano and is a fan of a good curry.
Fellowship is about many things, but Claire feels it is primarily about building and developing relationships and community. At the heart of this is the need to encourage one another and build each other up in love.
It is her hope that with God’s help we would continue to strive to be a warm and inclusive church family that looks both to support and serve one another and to welcome others and actively engage in our local community.
Janet Harris - Deacon for Children and Youth
Janet moved to Cambridgeshire about 15 years ago with her husband Graham and now grown-up children Jack and Grace.
She became a Christian in her mid-twenties and has taken an active part in church life both here at Bluntisham and previously in Essex where she was born and lived until moving into Cambridgeshire. Janet has continued to play an active part in the service of God here at Bluntisham Baptist Church in a variety of ways.
She has been a secondary school teacher for most of her career but 10 years ago became part of the Youth Service with the Local Authority.
Janet says: "I am really looking forward to managing the children and youth work at our church. We have a tremendous group of all age young people, with willing members who teach and nurture them every Sunday. My vision is to support that work and extend it so that all our young people feel valued, respected and most of all want to follow the Christian way of life"
Katy Horrocks - Deacon for Worship
Katy has been worshipping with us since 2003 and immediately knew this is where God wanted her and her family to be. She is married to Mike and has two teenage sons, Jack and Aaron.
Katy is a primary school teacher in Somersham, but when she's not in the classroom she loves baking, gardening and playing the saxophone - but not all at the same time!
She has been part of the worship team for several years and is passionate about helping people to praise and worship God.
