The current officers of CTiF are:
Lucy Docherty – Chair
I worship at Holy Trinity Church in Fareham and also at St Philip Howard RC church with my husband Paul, who is a Roman Catholic, as we are an Interchurch family and have always believed in the “double belonging” principle. We have four children and two grandchildren at the moment, with one more on the way! We met at Nottingham University and celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary in 2020. I work part time for the NHS as a Non-Executive Advisor for Fareham and Gosport CCG and I am involved with several local charities in Fareham and am also a member of General Synod. Being part of Christians Together is very important for me as it is an outward expression of a very important principle first articulated by Cardinal Hume that our churches “should not do apart that which we can do together”.
Liz Dunning – Treasurer
I am a member of Fareham United Reformed Church where I am currently a non-serving Elder. I used to work as a classroom assistant but now I am an invigilator at Cams School. A big part of my spare time is spent Guiding, I am a Guide Leader as well as an Assistant County Commissioner and I am at my happiest in a tent! I also enjoy gardening, walking and cooking. I am married to David and we have two daughters. CTiF has enriched my life in Fareham, enabling me to meet new friends and worship in new ways, and I am keen that others experience this too while sharing Christ’s love with our town.
Ian Corless – Secretary
I worship at Fareham United Reformed Church where I am a non-serving elder. I was brought up within the Methodist tradition and worshipped across many different congregations before moving to Hampshire in 2004 to work for the NHS. I have worked for a number of local Primary Care Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups in the role of Board Secretary and corporate governance lead. I am married to Fiona, and we have two sons. We previously lived in Milton Keynes, and met and were married at the ecumenical Church of Christ the Cornerstone in central Milton Keynes. Having also worked for the Council for World Mission for a decade, I have a passion for ecumenical work and seen my faith enlarged through the experiences of sharing our God-given talents, skills, resources and knowledge in mission and worship. When not at work or involved in church, I am a loyal supporter of football (AFC Portchester, Havant and Waterlooville and Crystal Palace) and love going to live music gigs.
