After spending many rewarding years teaching primary school children, both in multi-racial schools in inner city Birmingham and also at the Children’s Hospital, Maggie has now retired. She married Robert in 2018 and moved to Stratford-Upon-Avon. She is keen that Stratford Baptist Church works towards becoming an eco-Church and she also oversees Prayer.

Deacon

Harold and his wife Dot moved to Stratford-upon-Avon in 2019. Harold is a Liverpudlian, as is Dot, and he is qualified as a Marine Design Draughtsman. It was during his commuting on the Liverpool ‘Ferry Across the Mersey’ that he befriended a Christian as they both journeyed to and from work in Birkenhead. He is pleased that as an 18-year-old apprentice he experienced the joy of salvation, and he has loved the Lord ever since. He has worked as a Technical Author, and been involved in industrial and mobile hydraulics design work. Harold and Dot have also had their own very successful business. They both really appreciate the Lord’s guidance throughout their lives and wish to honour God’s command to now use their skills in the service of others.
