Senior Missionary & Safe Space Manager

I am Sandra and I joined Derby City Mission in June 2017 as a Senior Missionary.

I believe it is important for Christians to connect with and serve their local communities in a way that is loving, kind and giving just as Jesus Christ was, but I also believe that we need to be practical and meet the everyday needs of our communities.  That’s why I love the ethos of Derby City Mission and where people are supported and loved.

Prior to joining the team I have covered three specific areas in my working life, housing management, support work (for Refugees) and I worked as an engagement officer for a health and social care watchdog.

I attend All Nations for Christ Church which I co-pastor with my husband Patrick Dawkins.  We have two grown up sons and an adorable granddaughter; we are a close family and enjoy spending quality time together at the weekends.

One of my favourite things is perfume, I don’t have one particular favourite, I like so many of them but it’s good to smell nice!
