Jacky engages in evangelism and outreach in Witney and particularly on a new housing development (Windrush development) of 2000 homes. Along with the ecumenical team she has drawn together, she has been in contact with 60 plus families every week and others through Facebook. During Covid Jacky and her team have made and distributed craft packs and trails, set up a toddler group, and organised online events. Jacky has developed great links with the local town and district councils, and the new Church of England Primary School on the Windrush development.
She runs a monthly ecumenical messy-church-style gathering at the school, which she hopes will offer a next step for those they are currently connecting with in the community.
She is collaborating with the local Anglican and Methodist churches and has recently officially joined the ministry team of the local Anglican church in a non-stipendiary capacity.
