Godfrey is the Minister in Training under a two-year CBLP (circuit-based learning pathway) program in Derbyshire Northeast Circuit. Whilst studying to be a theologian part-time at The Queen’s Foundation Theological College in Birmingham, the other half of his time is spent in the Circuit. Since September 2023, under the Superintendent Minister, Sean, he has been gaining experience at Bolsover Methodist Church. Dedicated and compassionate, Godfrey is driven by a deep sense of purpose concerning his social justice agenda, missional evangelism and a genuine commitment to raising awareness on climate change.
Outside his involvement in the circuit, Godfrey is an active member of the board of trustees for ASSIST Sheffield, a non-governmental charity dedicated to aiding individuals in search of sanctuary and those who have faced the hardships of asylum rejection. In his free time from his studies, he also lends a helping hand as a Street Pastor, offering care and assistance to the angelic night owls who sometimes encounter challenging situations during their nocturnal escapades.
Transitioning into ministry after a successful career in Finance, Godfrey brings over three decades of experience spanning the hospitality, distribution, healthcare and architectural sectors.
