Who we are

Introducing the Trustees:

Hi, I'm Nikki and I am the new chair of CTHH. I have always lived in Hemel although had a few years away after Uni. I am currently working as a social worker for Herts County Council, which is a challenging and yet hugely rewarding job. I love helping others in need, something which comes from my Christian faith. I was brought up as a Christian and reconfirmed my faith when I was 14. I am very passionate about churches and Christians working together to share God's love and I am extremely excited about all the great work being done in the Lord's name here in Hemel. I am keen to build on what has already been achieved and create an even stronger network. Please look around the website to get more info and if you have any questions or comments please get in touch :-)

owenOwen Cooper - Vice Chair
Married to the lovely Kerry-Anne with two boys Pierce and Jason. I was in the British Army for 5 years and as a 19 year old got my licence to drive main battle tanks before I could drive a car. Spent 22 years in the Met, working in the CID for the last 10 years. Became a Christian in 1997 after doing an Alpha course at South Hill Church and seeing the amazing difference that God had in Kerry Anne's life. I am now one of the pastors at New Horizons Christian Fellowship and have been part of this family for about 8 years and love it. Left the Police 7 years ago to work for CAP in Hemel Hempstead. It is a real privilege to live, work and serve in Hemel Hempstead. I also love running Alpha courses, volunteer at The Base weekly youth club, 'Unlocked' and being involved with the Street Pastors initiative. I love cycling and over the years have raised nearly £20,000 for local charities such as CAP, Crossover and the South Hill Centre. My next big adventure is called 'Three Peaks in a week' This is climbing the biggest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales, but cycling between each venue which is about 500 miles apart (Yes I am mad). My passion is to see lives totally transformed by the love of God and have a particular calling to see the Church filled with strong men of faith.

Norman Spink joined the Enabling Group of Churches Together in Hemel Hempstead (now the Trustees group) in 2006. I joined as representative of the Anglican (Church of England) parish of St Mary's and St Paul's.  That parish covers Hemel Old Town and Highfield. I have been enthusiastic about Christian Churches working together since my student days at Exeter University 1959-1962, very moved by John Chapter 17 "that they may be one".  Then it seemed that some form of God Given organic unity could be achieved within 20 years, as we continued to break down the suspicions and even enmity that existed between churches.  I continue to believe that we do things better when we work together and are seen to be working together.  I also support the Dacorum Interfaith Network.
