About Colin & Mary's Children

Colin & Mary Peckham's three children are all serving the Lord in full time ministry.

Colin Peckham

BMus(Hons) BTh PGCE

Colin is married to Norma and they serve with Edinburgh-based Christian arts ministry Origin Scotland internationally. Colin leads the bands, choirs and orchestras for Origin, serving as their Artistic Director and Ministry Leader. They have a son, Andrew, who was born just the day before Mary had her stroke, but she was able to chat to him on the phone the day he was born, just as he was developing a healthy set of lungs. Colin has also served as a music director and worship advisor to the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelisation, for eight years as director of music for Carrubbers Christian Centre in Edinburgh and for a short-term three-year contract as part-time director of music for St James Church in Kenilworth. Norma is the publicity secretary for Origin, and manages their online and print church databases for both Scotland and South Africa. Colin works as a freelance website developer to support their ministry, and built and maintains this website. Colin & Norma are missionaries with A.C.T. International, a sending agency for arts ministries based in Nashville, TN.

Christine Jensen

After training to be an Occupational Therapist, Christine married Phil (an architect) in 1996 and began life together in Lancaster, NW England. Though they moved 7 times in the first 6 years of marriage, they were finally able to put down roots in Newcastle upon Tyne, NE England, where Phil moved into IT management. It was in Newcastle that their two children were born. Sam ('00) and Eve ('03) have been the richest of introductions to parenthood and the beautiful messy joys of family life. Phil and Christine got further involved in the life and ministry of the local church and it was during these 'settled' years in the North that they both felt a call to be equipped for ministry outwith the workplace. After four years ('07-'11) studying at Talbot School of Theology, California, USA, they returned to the shores of the UK, where Phil took up the role of Pastor of Light and Life Church, Penzance, Cornwall. Alongside the indispensible daily duties of motherhood, Christine volunteers part-time as a pastoral worker, walking with people as they journey out of addiction, marital difficulties and the brokenness of this life, into the freedom and healing of Christ.
