Link - Saffron Walden Churches

JONATHAN BURTON

I have been the pastor of Saffron Walden Community church since 2006, and the link for Stort Valley Schools trust since 2014. I think we are privileged that SVST can still visit so many local schools to share about Jesus, in both word and deed. I am very happy to be the link to Saffron Walden churches.
