Rev Jonathan Moores

Hi there my name is Jonathan and I am originally from Westhoughton, Bolton, where my family come from. I came to faith in Jesus when I was 22, yet had grown up in and around Church. Jesus has changed my life from darkness into light and brought purpose and direction that he calls life in all its fullness. I am also an avid armchair United fan when they are winning and love to play video games. I enjoy a great movie and a good tv series usually an American one. I have been greatly blessed by my 6 children and they manage to keep me on my toes. I am married to my beautiful wife Nicola. Together we have been called back to Lancashire to share the love of Jesus and help his Church move forward into all that he has in store for it. I am looking forward to meeting you soon. Blessings Jonathan.
