Rachel Hicks - Chair

I worship at St John's Church, where I am the leader of the pastoral support team. I am married to Jeremy, and we have a son and a grandson. I trained as an occupational therapist, and have worked as a mental health OT in hospital and community settings; more recently I was a special needs assistant in primary schools, working with visually-impaired children. I currently lead the team that organises Christians Together's annual summer holiday club for children. I love being part of Christians Together in Fareham, because I am passionate about Christians working together to spread the Good News of Jesus in both word and deed.

John Dear - Treasurer

John has been a Christian since 1978 and a member of Fareham Baptist New Life Church since 2009. He is part of the worship group playing keyboard and guitar and oversees the Audio-Visual team for live-streaming services. Previously he has been a member of Locks Heath Free Church, Thornhill Baptist Church and Southampton Community Church.
For work John is a self-employed IT Consultant and Fellow of the Institution of Analysts and Programmers, although he started his working life as a car mechanic. He also holds qualifications from the Association of Accounting Technicians.
John is married with two grown-up sons. In his spare time John enjoys watching Snooker, Rugby and (before Abu Dhabi) F1.

Jeremy Hicks - Secretary

I worship at St John's Church where I am a Reader (lay preacher) and music leader. Before retirement I was a software engineer in the digital television industry. I enjoy cycling, playing and watching sport, travel, beer, and the annual Greenbelt festival. I met Rachel at an ecumenical Lent study group in Fareham, and we have been married for over thirty years. I'm excited to be part of CTiF because of the many different ways in which we work together to bless our community.
