Helen was born in England but grew up in Egypt where she lived for the first sixteen years of her life. She is half English and half Egyptian. Helen went to a German school in Cairo so from her early years developed a passion for other nations, cultures and languages. She returned to the UK with her family in 1994 to finish her schooling and went on to study History and German at Christ Church College, Oxford.
While in Germany studying the history of the Reformation, Helen felt God’s call to full-time Christian ministry. She trained at Wycliffe Hall theological college, Oxford, and was ordained as a minister in the Church of England in 2004. She completed the practical side of her training on staff at St Aldates Church, Oxford, in 2007. Helen joined Heartcry Ministries in 2007 and is now a Director of the ministry and also volunteers her time at St Andrews Church in Cumnor, Oxford.
Helen enjoys the privilege of touching people’s lives at home and abroad through preaching, teaching and training. She loves connecting with the bigger picture of what God is doing nationally and internationally as she travels with Heartcry and ministers in conferences, retreats and training days.
