Biography and Notes

In common with many members of his family Chris went to Charterhouse. He graduated with a first in Economics and Land Economy from Magdalene College, Cambridge to pursue a career in Housing Economics starting his own consultancy business as Wessex Economics in 2013.
However, 22nd September 2020 saw him start work with Issachar Ministries as Ministry Co-Ordinator. One of his early contributions to the online magazine, Prophecy Today, published on 9th October 2020 was 'Reflections on the church.' Inter alia he says that the key requirement is that we should not be fearful; rather, we should be faithful. His piece ends "I pray that people I meet may see Jesus in me. I pray that people may see Jesus in you. In the times we are living, there is a great opportunity to be people of good news."
To an observer it seems that Chris has found where he really belongs. Congratulations!

For some while the combined efforts of the family have been devoted to publishing Chris' father's book.
'Memoirs of an Infantry Officer' saw the light of day early in 2021. He kindly donated a copy to the Trust.
