  • Mary Hodson

    Head of Women's Pastoral Ministry

    Mary was brought up in a Christian family and became a Christian at the age of 8. She trained as an Occupational Therapist and through this tested out mission opportunities in South Africa and China. However, God gave her the conviction that her role was in the UK, though with a heart for people from other cultures and those in need. In 2003, God brought Mary to Swindon and opened the door to start a church outreach to the homeless. Through this, God led Mary into pastoral ministry within the church, which became a part-time role as a pastoral worker for women. Mary has extensive experience of one to one work with ladies and has been developing her experience in biblical counselling. She has a keen heart for mission.
