Meet the Team
Alan Dye: Nottingham
Alan was born in Sunderland in 1946, but moved to South Bucks a year later (so does not speak with a Geordie accent!)
Although bought up in a Christian family, he drifted away from Christ in the mid 70's thinking that working 12 hours a day 7 days a week was the way to support his family (wrong plan). He spent 30 years of his working life with a local firm of Builders Merchants from counter clerk to financial director.
After a particularly bad time in his life (self inflicted) he was rescued by Christ in February 2003, then moved to Flackwell Heath in November 2004, where he spent the last eight years of his working life as caretaker at the local Primary School.
After joining Christ Church in January 2005 he soon became involved in the youth ministry preparing young people for confirmation, and was then asked to be part of a team to set up a Men's Group - fellaship , which has now been running for some six years.
He has a passion for local Churches working together and mission in general
He is thrilled to be part of CVM and looks forward to where that will lead him. But apologies chaps, he will not be growing a beard!!
