Speakers and Special Guests
Michele worked in the UK media for many years. Her last job was as Head of Communications for the NHS in Cumbria and Lancashire. She has written thirteen books, including Archbishop, her first novel – a thriller. Her latest book, Grace, published in February 2016, explores the journals of her husband’s remarkable grandmother, a rebel against and early feminist, whose faith and humour sustained her through life’s struggles.
Brought up in practising Jewish family, discovering Jesus the Messiah transformed her life and gave Michele a lifelong passion to see the church grasp the riches, colour, fullness and freedom of the grace He offers. And maybe some of the fun too! She has spoken at Spring Harvest, New Wine, Greenbelt, the Detling Summer Celebration, and The National Gathering.
Tarn (as affectionately known) is focused on community renewal through relationships, reform and innovation, lending her professional acumen and 14 years ministerial experience to a variety of high impact organisations such as Love146 Europe (Chair); Chapel Street (Director and Healthcare Advisor) and Hope Citadel Ltd (non-Executive Director).
Tarn preaches and teaches across the country (with a bias toward subjects most often avoided!) and really enjoys preaching at Mens’ Conferences! She is a keynote speaker and seminar contributor at Spring Harvest, New Wine, CVM’s The Gathering, AGLOW networks, and churches and groups of all persuasions across the UK.
Having served a lead singer of Phatfish for almost two decades – during which time she recorded eight albums, toured extensively throughout the UK, Canada and America – Lou is now four albums in to a firmly established career as a solo artist. Her distinctive voice and heart for people have made Lou a greatly loved worship leader, singer and recording artist. We are excited to welcome Lou back to Women Walking with God in 2017.
Cathy’s music and talents have taken her from the roof-tops of Shillong in North East India to arenas in Beirut, from village churches in England to stadiums in Argentina, from an orphanage in Romania to Brixton Academy in London. She has toured and played around the world over the last 20 years as a singer songwriter, worship leader and EDM vocalist. Cathy has led worship at national events such as Spring Harvest, and taken part in the worship teams as New Wine and Soul Survivor.
Over the last few years Cathy has partnered with the charity in MAF acting as an ambassador to raise awareness and funds through small acoustic concerts in churches around the UK. In everyday life she lives in an Old Chapel (which is also a recording studio) near Chichester on the South coast with her husband Paul and their three children. There, she runs a piano teaching business, leads worship at church and is a parent governor at the local school.
