Rick Taylor
Rick grew up in the Methodist Church and in 1972 went to Zimbabwe as a Missionary and it was there that he actually became a Christian, coming into a relationship with Jesus for the first time.  Rick currently works for the Department of Work and Pensions but is planning to retire soon.  One of Rick's favourite verses is Jeremiah Chapter 1 v 5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart".  This verse has meant a lot to Rick in the past and during present challenges.

Margaret Bale
Margaret has been at home in Felixstowe since moving from Norfolk 23 years ago.  She became a Christian 27 years ago through the influence of Christian friends and since then has been passionate about friendship evangelism and the church’s role in coming alongside people who are struggling with life difficulties and showing them the compassion of Christ.  Following retirement from a varied career, which included community work and church ministry, Margaret trained as a counsellor and now works as a volunteer trainer with a Christian counselling charity.
