Hello, I am Andrew Pinks (Andrew or Andy is fine). I was born in Coventry and have lived in the City my entire life. I have traced the Pinks family connection to the village of Berkswell back to the 16th/17th century.
Although I was christened in the Church of England I have been worshiping at Central Hall since 1994. Prior to coming to Central Hall, I had attended regular worship at Anglican, Baptist and Roman Catholic churches. Through this very varied experience of worship I have learnt that each denomination of the Christian Church teaches and practices much the same as each other and seek to, in their own ways, deepen their relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
I have been actively involved in the life of the church at Central Hall for more than twenty years. I am currently a church steward and have been involved with junior church and Alpha courses, in addition to being a circuit steward.
I believe being a Christian is a whole life experience and see all my varied meetings etc. as opportunities to spend fellowship time with my Christian friends. In addition to Sunday services I find my relationship with God is strengthened and encouraged through my fellowship at our weekly life group meetings.
I believe that God is calling Christians to be constantly ready to evolve our ministries to ensure that, Like Philip (Acts chapter 8), we are actively meeting people where they are, physically and spiritually, to help them develop a relationship with the God through our saviour Jesus Christ.
