Joe & Sarah Wells
Joe and Sarah live in London, where Joe works for an insurance company and Sarah works for CAFOD. They've helped to found the creative music collective One Hope Project.
Joe spent a year in the Sion community and Sarah with Animate Youth Ministries, and after meeting at Sheffield University they've since enjoyed getting involved with youth work in the Church, be it in a parish setting or through serving the Renewal.
Sarah is passionate about social action, justice and international development. She has recently spent time in Rome as part of the upcoming Synod on youth called for by Pope Francis. Joe leads worship at events around the country and loves encouraging One Hope Project to be creative and to share their gifts with the Church. In their free time Joe enjoys playing his guitar and Sarah enjoys playing sport.
Together, they are passionate about young people, their faith and family.
Steve served 20 years in the Met Police - mainly as a Detective on various proactive and covert squads. He ended his career leading a team on the London Crime Squad - that had responsibility for dismantling organised criminal networks (gangs) that were concerned with large scale drugs and firearms supply across the South East.
Up until 2007 he didn’t believe in God, Steve says: “the things I had seen in the police I felt pointed to there being no God. Then following the bombings of 2005, the death of my twin sister and the breaking down of my marriage to Liz - at my lowest, lowest (I have had a few) point - I found a God that loved me for who I was, a man Jesus that made everything make sense and the Holy Spirit that healed my wounds and marriage.”
In 2012 Steve left the Police - and now finds himself a Vicar - which, as he says, only proves that God has a good sense of humour!
