Who We Are

Trustees

Gillian Marchand

Gillian was married to Peter for 38 years and so involved with Inn Christian Ministries from the very beginning. Originally trained as an English teacher, after having a break to look after their three sons she retrained as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired and was head of the VI unit at a local mainstream secondary school before she retired. She handles the finances and much of the administration for the charity.

David Hadlum

David has travelled to Uganda with Inn and hosted the Faith Mission Uganda Youth Team as our guests for the millennium celebration “Priestfield 2000″. He is Senior Pastor of Chatham Evangelical Church, an Assemblies of God Pentecostal Church nearby in Medway. Peter had close fellowship with Chatham Evangelical Church since 1980, the latter having supported him in prayer and finance throughout his ministry.

Edward Wright

Edward has been an anglican minister for over thirty years, having started out as a chartered surveyor. He was rector of St.Helens, Cliffe in Medway for many years, during which time he became involved with Churches Together in Medway, in which he still serves on the Executive, with particular responsibility for co-ordinating joint prayer. In March 2017, he was part of the team that set up Medway House of Prayer. He became acquainted with Peter in 1989 when they worked together hosting one of our Patrons, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, for a 3 day Crusade in South East England, and since then worked with Peter on various large events in Medway. Beyond the towns, he has had involvement in the intercessory and reconciliation movements. He is married to Sarah, and they have five adult children, and four grandchildren. At present he has a part-time role as rector of St.George’s in Wrotham, near Sevenoaks: this gives him time to be involved with prayer, various initiatives and a number of Christian trusts in Medway.
