Rev. Amanda Pink

 

Originally hailing from Kent, Amanda came to Haddenham as our Minister-in-Training in 2013, whilst receiving training at Regent’s Park College, Oxford, before being ordained in July 2016.

Before training for Baptist ministry, Amanda was involved with a variety of church and mission ministries in and around the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, including youth and community work for Minster Road Baptist Church and The Noise on Sheppey (an ecumenical youth project), schools work with with The Family Trust, and Prison Chaplaincy with young offenders. She also has had experience as a teaching assistant and in the care sector.

Amanda first studied at Redcliffe College, where she gained a BA (Hons) in Applied Theology. She is currently continuing to work towards a Masters in Applied Theology at Regent’s Park College.

Easily identified by an apparently ‘quirky’ laugh, Amanda also enjoys being a member of Oxford Gospel Choir, having a good boogie, building dens in Wendover Woods (especially with her niece and nephew), and eating pie. One of her favourite things about Haddenham is the sound of the Red Kites overhead, and feels she has witnessed God’s love in the kindness and graciousness of people here, especially in the church family.
