Andy and Nicky moved to Bangkok in August 2020 to lead Christchurch (CCB) in the heart of the city. Bangkok is the capital of Thailand with a population of over eight million in the Chao Phraya river delta in central Thailand. It is a fast growing Asian mega-city in the Eastern hemisphere, an international hub for business, commerce, and transport. They have three children: Olive (12), Etienne (10) and Amélie (8).

CCB is a church serving its city in a predominantly Buddhist context. The church has opportunities to work alongside some of the poorest in society, refugees, the persecuted church, and those in the criminal justice system. The church is a beacon of hope in a mega metropolis reaching into the forgotten corners with God’s love. 

Nicky is an ordained priest in the Church of England and will spend her time on further theological study, church leadership, and serving the poor. Andy, also ordained, will assume the role of vicar of CCB. Both Andy and Nicky have experience in mission in the UK and overseas, and have a heart to support and foster the growth of the church in Thailand. 

ICS is pleased to welcome and support Andy and Nicola in their new ministry in Bangkok.
