Mrs Alison Jenner was born in Chelmsford in 1948. She attended Buttsbury County Primary School in Billericay and two small private schools in Essex and Hampshire.
Alison gained an N.N.E.B. in nursery nursing and an S.C. M. in midwifery. She married Jack Jenner in 1973, who was the Pastoral Assistant at Welwyn Evangelical Church. Jack was called as the pastor of Newtown Evangelical Church in Cheshum, Bucks in 1981. They have five sons, one of whom died when he was two years old.
Alison worked occasionally with special needs children, but considered her main career as a pastor’s wife and the mother of boys!
Alison and Jack moved to Ulverston, Cumbria in 2003 to help a church planting situation. They have three granddaughters.
Alison has self-published two poetry collections, ‘Declaring God’s Glory’ and ‘Kaleidoscope’.
