Shirley has been living in Luton since 2015 and part of Hope Church since then. Her heart is for the local Asian community and she is reaching out to families through prayer, friendship and in practical ways. She has a special desire to see children feel valued and grow in their relationship with God and knowledge of his love. She hopes to develop this vision by overseeing the children’s work at Hope, combining this with some of her cross cultural projects.
Shirley loves to travel and learn about new places and communities. She taught in Azerbaijan for six years – which was both challenging and wonderful! Shirley also makes really tasty brownies!
