All kinds of people work
behind the scenes at St Andrew’s, and it’ll be a while before you become aware of
them. But it’s useful to know some of the names and faces that you will
see at the front of our services from time to time.
Jonathan Juckes has been at St Andrew’s since 1998. He is married to Diana and they have five children. Before moving to Kirk Ella, Jonathan served at St Helen’s Bishopsgate in London, and before that in Sevenoaks.
David Spence moved to Kirk Ella in summer 2016 from his previous post training in twelve small churches in the Cotswolds. He is married to Ellie and they have three children. David worked in computing research before he trained to become a minister. He loves a good walk in beautiful scenery and still likes to tinker with computers.
Jane Eaman runs the church office, arranging
weddings, designing service sheets, and gently organising our
lives! We run into chaos whenever she is away. Jane has many years
of secretarial experience, having worked in the administration department
of West Yorkshire Police and as a secretary in the department of Computer
Science at Hull University. Jane is married with two children.
Les Collinson explains to friends that he is now onto his third career! Les played football for Hull City for many years, before a career as a maths teacher. He has been on the team at St Andrew’s for more than twenty years, and we would quickly grind to a halt without him. Les opens up and closes down the church building for us, on Sundays, at weddings and funerals and on other special occasions.
