Reader: Charles Porter

Charles has  been an active Christian throughout his life and has always had a passion for spreading the gospel. As a teenager he regularly took assemblies in secondary school and formed a Christian Union to promote the gospel. Preaching and leading services led to Charles being licensed as a Reader in 1999.

Charles has children and grandchildren and enjoys spending time with them as they learn and grow.

Reader: Sue Oxlade

Although the newest Reader, Sue is the oldest member of All Saints (in terms of years of service rather than age!), and has been a Christian all her life. Her main hobby is walking, and she likes to discover ways of linking what one may experience on a ramble with the journey we are all bound on: the journey through life. She has a particular love of pilgrimage and Celtic spirituality, and is engaged in walking the Camino to Santiago de Compostella. Sue enjoys opportunities to meet with other Christians and take part in different styles of worship through Churches Together. She is also the area organiser for ‘Bike ‘n Hike, the annual fund-raiser for Historic Churches in Herts & Beds, All Saints’ Christian Aid organiser, and Faith & Policy Co-ordinator for Mothers’ Union in St. Alban’s Diocese.
