The Rev’d. Patrick Mukholi
The Rev’d Patrick Mukholi took up his post as Associate Priest (Transition Minister) in the Parish of St Paul, Wokingham with a specific focus on Woosehill Church and its mission in January 2017. This appointment is for an initial period of three years.
Patrick is married to Helen, a carer, and Jonathan is their 25 year old son.
Patrick studied Agricultural Engineering at Nairobi University and served the Kenya government for eight years. The call to ministry led to Masters degrees from both Africa International University and the University of Aberdeen. He has previously served the church as a Youth Work Team Leader in Oxford and a Bible School Principal in Mombasa.
Patrick formerly served as a Pioneer Minister in Penhill, Swindon within the Diocese of Bristol and was engaged in moving the Church forward in mission and outreach by working in local schools and the community- specifically, through assemblies, messy church and faith exploration courses. He thoroughly enjoys preaching and teaching young and old alike and helping people find and recognise opportunities to live out their faith.
“I am excited about the opportunities in mission and ministry which this role in Woosehill presents. From what I’ve seen the Parish has people who have a deep curiosity about what God is doing in the world and are seeking to listen to the leading of the Spirit. I sense a hunger to grow in knowledge of the Lord of the mission and to make Him known.
Patrick was licensed at Woosehill Church on Thursday the 5th of January 2017 by the Bishop of Reading, and a recording of this Service can be enjoyed on our “Recordings: Recent Events” page. http://woosehillchurch.churchuna.com/home/about-woosehill-church/sermon-recordings/
