Pastor John Gowing
I was born 21/10/1959 in Norwich, and since leaving School have worked in Builders Merchants until December 2019 when I was made redundant after working 37 years for Buildbase.
When in Norwich I studied with the Wesleyan Reform Union and qualified to become one of their ministers, and came to Coventry in 1982, I am married to Jill and have three children and three grandchildren.
When I joined the church in 1982, to start with I preached occasionally, helped lead a house group, and took part in the youth meetings. After Pastor Ernie I was appointed Elder by the church and took on the responsibility of leading the church while still having a full time job. After being made redundant last year and David Walsh leaving the church, the church appointed me as Pastor along with Kirk in April this year.
