Mrs Catherine Evans-Routley: montiedon@hotmail.com

I am based in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire (where the High Leigh Conference Centre is) and married to a Methodist minister. I hold joint Anglican/Methodist membership and attend Christ Church Waltham Cross LEP (Methodist/C of E) where I am an Anglican Reader and Methodist worship leader. The church is part of HAEBEA Ecumenical area and I preach across the plan.

I am a nurse and spend part of my week in Warwickshire working for the University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust.

I am committed to the Covenant process as I believe both churches have lots to offer and already work together very closely. The covenant will allow both churches to flourish. As a Covenant Champion I hope I am able to help congregations in both traditions understand the process and promote closer working.
