Rev Cliff Shanganya was born in Zimbabwe. He is married to Christine and they are blessed with a 24 year old son called Divine.
Cliff was ordained in the United Methodist Church of Zimbabwe in 2001. He left there in 2003, going to Botswana where he served as a missionary until 2007.
Due to political instability in the Southern region of Africa, Cliff moved from Botswana to the United Kingdom where he has since settled. In 2008 Cliff went to Leeds College of Music, and studied Music Recording and Production. After that he enrolled to study Contextual Theology at Queen’s Foundation, and Chaplaincy with University of Gloucestershire where he graduated in 2014.
In 2015 he joined NHS Scotland where he worked as Hospital Chaplain in Glasgow before being stationed as a Methodist Minister in Norfolk Central Circuit in 2017. He was then received into Full Connection with the Methodist Church of Great Britain in 2019.
Cliff and his wife Christine are Gospel musicians. Their music is accessible here.
They are also the founders of the World is My Parish Children’s Foundation. More information about their Charity is available here.
Cliff has pastoral charge of the congregations of Hampshire Avenue, Ledger’s Road and St Andrew's Methodist Churches.
Pete has been a Methodist Minister for 30 years. Most of that time he has been teaching at Cliff College and at St John’s College in Durham University. Pete trained at Wesley College in Bristol where he also began to do some postgraduate work in New Testament/Theology. He also completed his PhD at Sheffield while at Cliff College as New Testament Tutor. Pete was Faith and Order Secretary of the Methodist Church for a while as his work shifted to focus more on digital theology. He now works half-time for Spurgeon’s College, while heading up the Centre for Digital Theology there … looking at how digital and faith work together in today’s church.
Pete is a family man – married to Theresa with three adult children and one grandchild (so far)! He loves technology, football, travel and reading – especially sci-fi. Micah 6:8 is his spiritual motto: “Act justly, love loving, be humble in your walk with God”.
Pete is a half-time Minister with pastoral charge of High Street Maidenhead and St Mark’s Crescent churches.
I was born and brought up in Zimbabwe, with my mum and dad. I am the eldest of my brother and sisters. I moved to the UK in 2002. Alongside working in the Health Care Sector, I studied at Essex College in Health Care, Social work, and Counselling, whilst working as a Registered Manager, supporting, and empowering individual people with learning disabilities as well as studying for the full-time ministry.
I am family orientated and love my family: my mum, daughter, two grandchildren and my siblings.
When I have free time I enjoy shopping, going on holiday, meeting friends and family, eating out, watching films, listening to music and driving!
This is my first appointment since leaving Queen’s Foundation Theological College. I am really looking forward to joining and working alongside the people in the Thames Valley Circuit, and to getting to know you all and the local area. I am passionate about people and evangelism through journeying with people and sharing the good news.
Margaret will be working with the Community Outreach Projects based at Colnbrook & Poyle, St Mark’s Crescent and Woodlands Park.
