"Throughout our time in leadership, we have had a heart for developing 'a Church for this time' – a growing Church that is relevant, with a vision to bring a Christian culture change to the community in which we live. To see this desire fulfilled we need to be ready to adapt and change. We are excited to be part of a team that is committed to develop strong relationships in order to have increasing Christian influence within our beautiful island and beyond." (John & Jenn)

"I am passionate about cooking and am just completing a course in professional cookery. My other passions are drumming and surfing, but not at the same time! Every time I surf and enjoy Jersey for all it has to offer I realise that all creation shouts His praise!" (Tim Bond)
Andrew De Gruchy
Andrew and his wife Serena are parents to three great kids: Naomi, Micah and Phoebe. Andrew has a passion to see Christianity, or more importantly Jesus, making sense of the everydayness of life. After 10 years as a Pastor, Andrew admits he’s been greatly humbled over the way God has built His church over that time. With the onset of more grey hair he’s realised “that I want to make the most of my time slot here on earth.” Andrew loves preaching and is also responsible for overseeing the events that we engage in as Freedom Church.
"I love adrenaline sports and activities; a hard day’s skiing is my idea of relaxation. I work as a Joiner for half the working week but love the trade as a hobby also. Our children are a constant reminder of the wonder of God’s creation and I adore this creation." (Andrew De Gruchy)
