It was GREAT getting to know Maurice Redmill and his wife Catherine this past weekend. Maurice is one of the elders at Kings Community Church in Southampton.
M.M: Tell me briefly about your background?
M.R: I was born in Portsmouth and did my education there. I went to a Teacher Training College where I met Catherine. It was LOVE at first sight! I married Catherine 4½ years later. During my last year of College, I felt God calling me to full time ministry so I taught for a year before doing a degree in Theology in Bristol. It was a great time of God’s provision as all my fees and accommodation needs were met. Catherine and I have 2 children: Nicola who is 40 years old and Simon who is 36.
