Paul Godfrey

Paul Godfrey was a leading thinker about, and practitioner of, evangelism for children and the development of their discipleship. He held the position of Children's Work Adviser for the Anglican Diocese of Chelmsford for six years. Paul previously worked as a children's evangelist and as a secondary school teacher. His passion that children should be high on the Church's agenda led him to stand for General Synod, and serve on it for five years. He was a member of the European Forum on Children's Evangelism, and was helping to plan the European consultation in 2010.


Sadly, Paul died suddenly in August 2007. He was a thinker and inspirer of others who held his love of children alongside his Christian faith. He was a role model for children's workers and influenced many in the Church of England and in wider national and European networks.
