Jonathan Ewbank

Hello. I am Jonathan Ewbank and I am chair of trustees of CCDC. I became a trustee in 2014 when I worshipped at St Leonard’s in Lexden. In 2015 I and my wife Alison moved to Long Melford in Suffolk. Despite this move CCDC remains my link with the town I lived in for 30 years.

It has been a privilege to be part of our Debt Centre and to see it flourish, despite challenges like the pandemic. I honestly believe that we are part of God’s plan for Colchester and He has been guiding us of late in our new initiatives like Life Skills and in adding to our capacity to help people who are struggling with problem debt.

We are blessed with a fantastic staff team, with wonderful volunteers, great support from churches, individuals and businesses, and we have a dedicated group of trustees. I am a keen bird-watcher and I enjoy walking our two chocolate Labradors. I also carry the burden of being a Colchester United season ticket holder!
