LIS and IAN WARD
We arrived at Trinity in December 2018 to take up the posts of Vicar and Associate Vicar. Previously Lis served on the staff team of St George’s Stamford and Ian was an RAF Chaplain before joining the St George’s team. We have three grown up daughters and one eccentric cat. We love coffee, music, technology, second-hand bookshops, being outside, especially on the west coast of Scotland, and travel.
“We are really excited to be part of the family of Trinity and sharing with them in the good news for Boston. God has not turned his back on us and he longs for each and every one of us to engage with him through Jesus in the power of His Spirit.”
Jon joined the Trinity team in July as Curate after training in Sheffield and Lincoln. He will be ordained deacon in late September
I was appointed Pastoral Outreach Worker in June 2014 following 12 years in the property industry and a further 8 in education. My 8 years as a worshipper at Holy Trinity was preceded by more than 30 at Zion Methodist so, although a Lancashire lass, I’m told I almost qualify as a local!
My vision for this role is to see the lonely and isolated of our parish and community meet with Christ through the love and service of those who belong to Him.
I am married to the saintly Gary with whom I love to visit what we now refer to as ‘our summer home’ – the Greek island of Lesbos. I am also blessed with the most wonderful family and friends.
I moved to Boston, and joined Holy Trinity Church, together with Hilary and the family, in 1989.
As Lay Pastor and Reader, I lead services, preach, teach and help with the wider pastoral care of the church. In line with this, I host a home group and currently lead the Healing Prayer Team. I am now retired from consultant surgical practice.
Leisure interests include: enjoying making music (I’m an organ anorak!), gardening, DIY, the family and grandchildren.
After retiring from a career in education and working in Horncastle (where I was in charge of the typewriting department!), Boston and Donington, I retired in 2010 and trained as a Diocesan Reader. In this role it is a joy to help in the support of churches and chapels in the surrounding area as well as preaching and teaching in Holy Trinity.
My involvement in Christian Explorer and Discipleship courses offers the opportunity to present the Christian faith in accessible and clear ways and also aims to help all who come to continue and deepen their walk with the living God – a privilege indeed.
I still manage some running, and enjoy gardening, walking in the Lincolnshire Wolds and the Lake District. I also sing regularly in local Folk Clubs.
I joined the staff at Holy Trinity as Administrator in January 2007 after 20 years in the banking industry. My job is wide and varied with no two days being the same! I have been part of the Church Family for over 30 years. I am married to Ant and we have a daughter called Eve.
I enjoy being part of a thriving church and am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us in the years to come.
