Children and Family Worker - Sharon Lloyd
After qualifying as a nursery nurse in 1998 I promptly married my husband of now 20 years and then moved to Chessington. I have worked in several nurseries, once as deputy manager and then after feeling as though I wanted a different challenge I started working in a primary school assisting the reception class teacher. It was while I was at Ellingham primary school that I had both my boys and completed my open university degree. Since giving my life to Christ at a Billy Graham rally my faith has grown and deepened...when the position of Children worker came up at Surbiton Hill Methodist I felt it was a message from God - an opportunity to work with children, one passion but to be able to teach them about the loving Lord - my other passion. I have had the privilege of being the Children and family worker for 10 years now and thoroughly enjoy the challenges and rewards it brings.
