Helen was born and bred in London and worked there as a Solicitor until meeting her German husband, Thilo, in America in 1989. She has lived in Bonn since her marriage in 1991 and has 4 children. She has been a member of the Bonn congregation since 1994 and loves the friendly atmosphere at St. Boniface (her umbilical cord to England, as Thilo puts it!) For many years she ran the Bonn Sunday School and has served both as Secretary to the Friends and as CAECG representative. She also had a 13 year stint as a member of the Bonn Council. After a healthy 5-year break she is now happy to be joining the Council again and is looking forward to the challenges of the year ahead. She has a special interest in the charities supported by the Chaplaincy and is keen to raise the profile of our charitable giving.
