Paul and Fiona met at The Royal National Theatre. They married in 1984. Since then there have been many times they have worked together in theatre and music – but their passion is ministering the Gospel.
Paul’s distinguished career includes being the award–winning lead singer of Manfred Mann (now 'The Manfreds' whose hits include “Do Wah Diddy” and “Pretty Flamingo”), and The Blues Band – he has recently worked on new albums with both groups. His collection of gold discs includes one for the original “Evita”. Millions listen to him on Radio 2 and elsewhere, and on TV he has hosted talk shows and performed everything from Shakespeare to soaps. His extensive stage credits range from the Royal National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company to the West End and Broadway.
Fiona was an accomplished actress and singer before entering into ministry. She has worked in many areas of show business from her acclaimed TV series “Widows” (for which she won Personality of the Year Award) to leading roles at the Royal National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Fiona has starred in a number of West End productions and has sung on many show recordings. She shares a couple of gold discs with Paul.
Together they have recorded several CD’s celebrating the work of composers from Irving Berlin to Andrew Lloyd Webber. Their Gospel album “Personal” has been very well received: its songs express their love for their Heavenly Father, and for each other.
"Salvation happened for us both on the same night in 1984. We had fallen in love and were living together in a small flat near Notting Hill Gate.
"One day we had a phone call out of the blue inviting us to attend a huge evangelistic meeting at White City Football Stadium. It was a glorious summer's evening and that was the night our hearts were completely changed and touched by the unconditional love of God".
The anointed minister who brought the powerful message of Salvation through Jesus that night was Luis Palau.
We long for people everywhere to know the glorious, unconditional love of Almighty God. Having had a wonderful encounter with Him ourselves that has been utterly life changing, we desire very much to share our experience with as many people as possible. Human beings long to know that they are loved, that they are special, and that they have a great purpose on this earth. God wants that for us too. Through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, He has made it possible for people all over this earth to live an abundant life. Success can be deceiving and it’s easy to think that material wealth and high positions in society are all that will bring a person great fulfilment. God is not against people doing well, but to live a life of true abundance is first to recognize the one who made us. God Almighty. We are not a mistake, we were created on purpose by a loving God who longs to have a forever friendship with us. He wants to be our Heavenly Father and so He sent Jesus to make that possible; the Bible says in the Gospel of John, chapter 3 and verse 16, ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life.’ Jesus died on a cross to take upon Himself everything that would destroy human beings; our grief and sorrow, our sin and shame, everything we wish we had never done, every torment and failure, even our sickness and disease and lack of peace. Such is the glorious love with which God in Heaven loves us. We can know His complete forgiveness and mercy, His grace (undeserved favour) and healing, in every area of our lives. ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS ASK, and that’s when real forever success begins.
We desire to take this glorious message of love to everyone that will hear. "Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it, do not harden your hearts". Hebrews Chapter 4 v 7.
