Dave Scourfield - Trustee

Born in Paddington, I grew up with my family attending the local Catholic church. Work later took me to Watford where I have been living for the last 20 years. I am married to Juliet, have three wonderful older children and 3 equally wonderful grandchildren. After many years of lapsed faith I rediscovered the joys of being a Christian through an Alpha course at St Luke’s, Watford  in 2009 and would really say that my Christian faith began then.

I became involved in Watford Town Centre Chaplaincy soon after, becoming a Street Angel which I still am, both as an active team member and also helping coordinate and manage the volunteers. Aside from family, Street Angels remains my passion. It is wonderful to be able to help the vulnerable on the High Street of Watford, and see the way Jesus can work through us into people’s lives.

I have been involved in lay preaching and leading at St Luke’s and other Watford churches and am enjoying a second term as a trustee.

Professionally I am a town planner, and have worked in local government for nearly 30 years, currently serving as Chief Planning Officer for a London Borough.
