John & Katherine

John & Katherine

John grew up in South Hertfordshire and went to school in central London. He read Philosophy and Theology at Oxford University before returning to London to take up a teaching position at Chelsea Independent College. After five years with Chelsea, John moved up to Norfolk where he is currently working as a freelance tutor and writer. John’s first encounter with the Cornerstone Church came through the Trinity Broad Singers who used to rehearse in the church on Monday evening. It was also the Trinity Broad Singers that brought Harbour Radio to John’s attention. Harbour became the first radio station to host a show for John, and it was through Harbour that John met Brian James, who, as station manager at Faithful Radio has brought John back to Cornerstone church in Martham. It was also at Harbour that John met his co-host Katherine, who is now a big part of John’s life. John’s interest are extensive and varied: as well as being a radio host he has performed stand-up and improvised comedy; won a reality t.v. show; coached a successful youth football team; he likes cooking, theatre, mixology and art-appreciation in any order and combination. As a Christian John is of the radically liberal persuasion. Drawing extensively from the work of William Blake he is a believer in the doctrine of universal salvation. He abhors any kind of prejudicial attitude that seeks to limit an individual’s right to freedom of expression, identity, orientation and bodily autonomy. Instead he would rather people simply be kind to each other, regardless of how different their world-views may be.

 

Katherine

Katherine grew up in Belton, and has been a Norfolk girl all of her life. Presenting a show for Faithful Radio has been her first encounter with the Cornerstone Church. However, it is not her first time presenting radio, she hosted a show on Harbour Radio, where she met Faithful Station manager Brian James, as well as her co-host John, whose presence she tolerates admirably. Katherine works as a promotional representative for various companies in East Anglia, including Archant Media. She is also a licensed greyhound racing judge and works at the Yarmouth Stadium. Katherine also manages to find time to be a professional model. Appearing in a range of magazines, Katherine specialises in historical, fashion, and body-paint images. She is also the producer of new, Yarmouth based sitcom, Double Top (written by her co-host John). Katherine is a keen actor, and has performed at the Pavilion Theatre Gorleston; Marina Theatre Lowestoft; Jurassic Journey in Great Yarmouth; a youth awareness film for Norfolk County Council; and appeared in Yarmouth based web-series Our Town. Katherine's devotion to cats has inspired their new radio show “Cool for Cats” aimed primarily at the feline radio audience, although their long-suffering human servants are welcome to listen in as well.
