In Elmdon Park, Solihull
“The Church in the Park”

Karen Matthews

Karen’s church life started in Elmdon Brownies and Guides. University did nothing for Godly belief, especially when laboratory experiments didn’t work – her partner was the Christian Society President!

At Bickenhill, a vicar took time over this unbelieving person – God stepped in and her new faith was nurtured in a fellowship group.

Learning to play guitar introduced Roger Jones musical trips to Israel. A ‘word’ said that one of the guitarists would lead worship – “Not me!” said she.

Karen is now surprised to be a Reader, but through preaching enjoys trying to share the amazing story and love of Jesus.
