Jim was invited to Sheffield to help in the work at Richmond Church in 2005. Jim and his wife Joan have 3 married sons, and at the moment have eight grandchildren. Family is very important to them, the Bible tells us we were created for relationship, and God gave us family groups to live in and to support one another. This is a reflection of the relationship a Father God wants with his people.
The Church is also a family unit. We are brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. At Richmond we have people of many different backgrounds, of all ages from noughts to nineties, but with one common factor - we are all one in Christ. And just as our personal families grow and change as we welcome new members through marriage or new births, so we are always happy to welcome new members into our church family.
