Community Pastor

Community Pastor – Rev Jan Stevenson

Rev Jan Stevenson

 As Community Pastor in Ballyholme Parish my post involves making connections between the church and the wider community.  I have also been asked to help develop modern expressions of worship.  I have spent the last 15 years as a full–time Mum to Ruth (14) and Hope (6).  It is lovely to be kingdom building in Ballyholme with my husband Sam.

Before moving to Bangor I was curate–in–charge of St Andrew’s Ballysally for 5 years and before that I was curate in Lisburn Cathedral for 5 years.

I originally trained as a Primary School teacher and taught for 2 years in Dublin and 2 in Tanzania with CMSI. I have worked with the L’Arche Community, a Presbyterian drop–in centre in Kilcooley estate, and Church Planting in the Braniel estate.

I love to share the joy that Jesus gives me with others and I am continually discovering how powerful prayer is. I find children and adults fascinating and great craic.

I enjoy swimming, sewing, everything my children do, and having friends round for meals.
