Gwenda Moore

Assistant Churchwarden - Godshill

“Maths was always my favourite subject” she told the interview panel for her first job. She felt excited by the Christian call to work overseas. So, armed with a maths degree, it was VSO in Singapore teaching Chinese boys; CMS in Nigeria, post Biafra, teaching girls; and then with her (late) husband and their two daughters, to a vicarage in Hong Kong.

Now along with her husband Alan, they’re keen to see St Giles develop as a resource for their local community and an increasing Christian presence in Godshill. ‘Mission Matters’ and Traidcraft (fairtrading) naturally appeal to them both.
