Hello, my name is Sydney Samuel Lake. I join the Wey Valley Circuit with pastoral oversight for Walton-on-Thames, Weybridge and Addlestone Methodist Churches. I am married to Hawa, who is a qualified social worker and we care for our two children: Sydney David and Grace Samuella.
Prior to full time ministry, I studied Accountancy, completed an MBA, and then worked as a Chartered Management Accountant in the Public Sector, particularly for Local Authorities. Since studying Theology Ministry and Mission at the Queen's Foundation in Birmingham, I now consider myself a traditional Methodist. I love to practice the best of Methodist original traditions in addition to new ways of doing church.
I pray, that God's Holy Spirit may help and guide us as we serve the people of God in our community and for more people to offer themselves over to God's service.
My off-duty day is Monday.
