Andy and Debbie Jackman
We joined the team at QW in 2017, not sure of what our exact roles would be but inspired by God's presence at QW and amazed at the prospect of serving God in such a wonderful setting.
We come from different backgrounds - Andy has been in estate agency for over 30 years and Debbie had been providing administrative support to the Adult Learning and Leisure Office and also working with GenR8, a Christian charity taking the Christian message into schools and supporting churches in their work with children.
We love working here, although we don't regard it as work - it's too rewarding, fulfilling, interesting and varied to be work! Our guests are such wonderful people, real people with real life experiences and looking after them is such a pleasure. Really! God does something amazing here and serving our guests somehow energises and enthuses us!
We were both active in our local Baptist church when we lived just north of Cambridge, serving on the Diaconate and heading other projects including outeach to men, Mums & Babies, holiday clubs, prayer days and church away weekends.
Whilst we love our role here at QW we also love our spare time, too, and believe in resting, relaxing and being creative. These take many forms - Andy's interests include beekeeping, photography, Munro-bagging and wood-turning whilst Debbie has a keen interest in family history and crafting, especially jewellery making and crochet. And she loves cooking, too - as our guests will testify!
