Christina works to support charities, churches and businesses in building communities through music and laughter. For more information please see below…
Christina's Christian faith is very important to her and she loves to use her gifts to help and support churches wherever she can.
Outreach - Sutton Bridge Community Gospel Choir was run in association with the local church and was very successful in reaching out into the local community. Christina also studied with the Pioneer Church Planting group at Ridley Hall Theological College in Cambridge and has been a part of Pioneer support groups since then. She is happy to run training and mentorship programmes for church members to use music to reach the wider community. She is also happy to run workshops for you, or to work with you on a regular basis if you are close enough (she is based in Rayleigh.)
Worship – Christina has led worship bands and singing groups for about 25 years. She is happy to assist churches in training up their singers and musicians both musically and in thinking about what is 'Worship'.
Dogs (yes, really!) - Christina is also a highly experienced dog trainer having twice competed internationally as part of the British Team at the Open European Championships, twice at the Crufts Freestyle Finals and having worked as Head of Training and Behaviour for ICC Dog Training centres. She does a variety of talks and displays to the public (including Canine Freestyle and Heelwork-to-Music… dancing with dogs) and is happy to talk about her faith as part of them should you so wish. For more information about her as a dog trainer please see www.eventdogs.co.uk
In everything that she does Christina tries to build community and relationships through fun (laughter is as regular in rehearsals as singing!) and a supportive atmosphere that is modelled and copied. She is constantly amazed as to how choirs can become family that support each other through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. If this is what you're trying to build, let her help you…
