Meet Adam & Fru
Adam and Fru Bird are the Campus Pastors for Sunnyhill Ferndown.
They have been married for 23 (awesome & eventful) years and together they are raising five amazing humans: two teenaged boys – (Gideon and JJ) and three girls ranging from teen to toddler (Charlotte, Grace and Eliza).
They met at Middlesex Uni in 1992, studying Performing Arts and both had careers in the arts and education. Adam was a gigging musician and composer for many years. He became an Assemblies of God minister, serving for 15 years on staff at Bromley Christian Centre whilst lecturing at University of West London before God called him and the family to Dorset this year. Fru was a dancer and artistic director for Springs Dance Company, an arts adviser and then secondary school teacher and foster carer whilst volunteering for the Bromley church. She studied Theology and Leadership at St Mellitus College.
Since coming to Dorset, they have unpacked a bit, had some people over and registered with the doctors.
Adam and Fru love God more than anything. They often refer to keeping Jesus front and centre. They do their best to live a joined up life where faith, life, fun, people and cake all have significance. Adam loves to lead worship and teach the Sunday gathering how to succeed in the ‘with-God’ life. Fru loves to help people navigate life’s ups and downs, moving to the next level of faith and ministry. They both have a passionate care for the people of this district and a heart to see people of all ages discover their purpose, follow the living God and flourish.
