Since childhood Anni has had a heart for the marginalised of society.
When she came to London 27 years ago as a missionary, Anni initially worked with YWAM reaching out with the gospel to women on the street, sex workers, drug users and the homeless of London. She was part of the leadership in a church plant working mostly with vulnerable people, and has since developed extensive experience in various roles in a number of churches.
Anni started visiting the largest female prison in Europe to lead services and groups, and to work with women one on one. She then became a chaplain at HMP Holloway and worked there for many years watching God bring many of the women to a living faith in Jesus. "What a powerful Savior we serve!" she exclaims.
For the past few years Anni has worked with London City Mission and feels truly privileged to work alongside many very gifted missionaries and staff that are on fire for Jesus. At LCM she has been working with the men who are homeless in the Corner House, Webber Street and Hope Community Homes, and lately as a team leader in Newham, pioneering a new women’s ministry. Anni is also a trustee at a local church's night shelter and has more recently accepted the post as Field Director of the Homeless and Marginalised at LCM.
Anni says "My dream and vision is to see many restored physically as well as spiritually, and the church equipped to reach those on the margins effectively by us partnering closely together."
Anni is married to Tony for over twenty years and they have been serving together in ministry ever since. Tony pastors Tower Hamlets Community Church which is a welcoming multi-cultural, multi-generational church that loves mission and sharing the gospel locally as well as internationally.
