I am married to Sarah and have 3 grown up sons and 7 grandchildren. I am a retired Church of England minister but still active in ministry within local churches.
I believe that all children should have the opportunity to hear that God loves them unconditionally in Jesus Christ."
Mr David Brown - ACTIOS Trustee and Treasurer

I am married to Joyce and in 2016 we celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We have 5 grandchildren and I am passionate about enabling children to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. I am an Elder at St Neots Evangelical Church and it is a privilege to serve ACTIOS as its Treasurer.
Dr David Pacini – ACTIOS Trustee
Responsible for Human Resources, Policies, Pastoral, Safeguarding
I am incredibly happily married to Hayley and we worship at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in St Neots. After a stint in heart research, I taught Biology in schools for nearly thirty years, writing A-level exams, reports and articles as a Principal Examiner and schools’ inspector, before finally retiring as a Deputy Head. Now I occasionally work at Longsands Academy – so I’ve never really left school! I am privileged to support ACTIOS, letting everyone know that God became a man called Jesus, loving us without limit.”
Mrs Margaret Sare - ACTIOS Trustee
Responsible for Pastoral, Human Resources, Policies, Safeguarding
I am married to Roger for a mere 36 years. We have 7 children, three still in education and rest have flown the nest! Thirty years plus of kids mean I have an interest in education and in bringing Jesus Christ into children's lives, which will continue as our grandchildren grow (currently only one but I am sure more will follow!). We worship at River Church St Neots.
