Let your friends know...

Here at The Well Christian Healing Centre, we are able to do what we do thanks to an incredible team of people who share in our vision.

The overwhelming majority of people you will meet at our prayer ministry, at soaking prayer sessions, quiet days and our other events are volunteers, who are supported by their church leaders and who have undergone training for their roles.

Other volunteers support us in the office as we prepare for those same events and we have a board of trustees who also give of their time freely to help us on our way.

Somewhere in the midst of all these amazing contributions is the staff team, who we introduce to you here:

In her down time, she spends time with her 2 beautiful boys: rabbit Henry and cat Monty, she has a barely concealed passion for the cinema, Strictly Come Dancing and a latte with friends, and loves to travel. Anne also sits on the board of trustees.

Executive Director

Mark is married with two children and lives in Coventry where he attends Coventry Vineyard church.

Mark has spent many years running not for profit organisations in the UK following 20 years of working within industry. He is keen to use the knowledge and experience gained in helping The Well both in its day to day operations as well as assisting the Trustees in planning for the future.

To relax Mark enjoys gardening, fishing and playing the saxophone.

When you call our office, Jim is likely to be the one who answers the phone. Jim is a safe pair of hands for all of your queries and is a great support to everyone who he encounters. Jim spends his spare time singing in a choir or playing around with a spreadsheet.

Kevin has been a trustee since September 2016, and is currently a member of the Premises Committee and chair of the Finance Committee.

He spent 30 years working for National Grid and its predecessor companies in a variety of commercial, governance, and programme management roles around the UK before taking early retirement in 2014.

He moved to Kenilworth with his wife over 20 years ago and has attended St John’s church throughout that time, twice being PCC Secretary.  He was on the project team that recently managed a major reordering project at the church, and one reason for joining The Well trustees was to apply what he’d learnt to the renovation project at Augusta Place.

He enjoys hill walking, badminton, Arsenal football club, and Yorkshire cricket.
