Frances has been a member of this Church for about 35 years. During that time the Church has grown and changed quite a lot, and she has completed a doctorate on Matthew's Gospel and nurtured three children. She encourages literacy and theological education through her charity work, and tries to be organised and keep fit. She is a Director of Grove Books Ltd, Trustee of Feed the Minds, Chair of the United Society for Christian Literature, and taught on the Diocesan Local Ministry Programme for quite a few years. Her three children attended all the Junior Church groups possible; one is now a vicar, one a teacher and one is also a Churchwarden.
