Revd George Mwaura
URC Minister and Leader of Ministerial Team as well as Pastoral consultant for Milton Keynes and Northampton Areas of East Midland Synod of the URC.
I was born and brought up in the Rift Valley part of Kenya. After completing my higher education in Kenya, I went to Punjab University in India, where I studied for a BA degree in Economics and Public Administration. Upon graduation, I worked with the Kenyan Government as an administrative officer in various ministries. Then I joined the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and I served in several countries.
I settled in the United Kingdom in 1995, working first in the private sector, prior to joining Westminster College, Cambridge. There I trained for the ministry and completed a BA honours in Christian Theology. After leaving Westminster, I spent one year as a student minister in the St Ives group of churches in Cambridge before accepting a call to minister in Bolton Trinity pastorate. This was a group of three churches of the United Reformed Church in Lancashire, North-West England. I spent four and a half years of wonderful ministry there before joining the team at the Ecumenical Church of Christ the Cornerstone in Milton Keynes in October 2016.
At heart, I am a traditional ecumenist, who passionately believes in the unity of the Church. I value the freedom of others to worship God in their traditions and to respect my position as we collaborate in the effort to unite our Lord’s Church here on earth.
I am married to Christine and we have two adult children: Lancia our first born is 28, she works and lives in Abingdon Oxford and Jordan, who is 23, lives and works in London.
I enjoy gardening, golf, walking, cooking, reading, and travelling abroad.
