Steve Lee – Elder

Steve is married to Juliet and between them they have five children and four grandchildren. Steve recently retired after a 43 year Steve & Juliet2career in railway signalling and now appreciates getting regular sleep, having worked so many night shifts! Steve had the privilege of leading a Sunday School for several years followed by a thriving weeknight youth club at St John’s, Woking, for thirteen years. After marrying Juliet, they ran the evangelism and seeker courses for a further seven years. Steve & Juliet  joined New Hope in August 2011. Apart from  responsibilities at church, Steve & Juliet work voluntarily for Creation Ministries International, a ministry providing resources that affirm biblical truth, vital when the Bible is so often doubted. They enjoy taking walks to keep fit and it gets them away from the computers! It is a great privilege to be part of the church family here at New Hope Church, and especially seeing God growing people individually and corporately. Steve is our financial officer.
