Rev Alan Combes

Greetings sisters and brothers in Christ – I’m Reverend Alan and what a privilege it is for Michele and I to serve here in the Vale of Stour area with you.

Me in seven words:

  1. Minister – passionate about Jesus and what it means to be a Christian called a Methodist.
  2. Husband – for over 30 years, so my wife deserves a medal.
  3. Father – of two wonderful girls living and working in London.
  4. Enthusiast – for people, life, the church and what God can achieve in us if we have faith!
  5. Imperfect – therefore a lover of God's grace and always in need of forgiveness.
  6. Musician - who enjoys all forms of music from orchestra, to organ, to brass bands and rock bands!
  7. Mathematician, teacher and engineer for 24 years before I entered ministry...

May the peace of the Lord be with you...

Rev Alan
