LICENSED Lay Minister (llm)
Gertrud retired from teaching Religious Studies A level in July 2011. This means she can now spend a lot of time on things she enjoys – walking, cycling, reading books (theology, fiction, poetry, occasionally cookbooks), knitting for her granddaughter, being a Licensed Lay Minister and Warden of LLMs in the Diocese.
At Busbridge, Gertrud is mostly involved with the Classic service, but she also likes to contribute to the Contemporary and evening services.
Her particular concern in preaching is to link biblical teaching to current affairs and to hear what God is saying through the ancient texts to our lives today.
