Rev. Julie Letts
Julie was born in Hinckley, Leicestershire, where she lived until moving to Churchill in 2009 to take up her first appointment in ministry.
Her working life began in banking and then moved into administration. She worked as a PA in a local firm in Hinckley and also at a private physiotherapy clinic. In between both of those jobs she was a post-lady delivering mail both in Hinckley and Burbage.
Julie was actually brought up in the Roman Catholic denomination which formed her faith but left church as a teenager and then went back when her children Vikki and Richard were born, this time to the Methodist church in Hinckley. Here her journey with God re-commenced and she found a passion for Jesus and wanted to share that with people. Julie says, “So today, I find myself in the most unlikely of roles – ask anyone who has encountered me on the hockey pitch! – but one that brings me great joy as I help anyone who wants to, in their own personal journey with God. And I do that, not only as a Methodist Minister, but as a Minister in New Creation which is exactly endeavouring to be the Church God wants us to be – working together, as one community.”
All the cycling as a postie helped her keep fit for the sport she loved to play. She was a member of both Hinckley Ladies Hockey Club and the athletics club, Nuneaton Harriers. Sadly her spare time these days is spent watching sport rather than participating as injuries have taken their toll but she still enjoys walking and swimming.
Julie is married to Malcolm and as well as their two grown up children they have two young grandchildren.
