Alan and Jan Kilpatrick
joined the Iris Global UK board in 2020. Alan and Jan have been leading Anglican churches for over 21 years in various parts of the world, such as South Africa and the USA. In 2017 the Lord called them to step out of the Anglican church and to give everything away. They ended up attending and staffing Iris Harvest School and were asked to become Directors of Hospitality in Pemba. The Hospitality centre had to close due to terrorism and so Alan and Jan came back to the UK in 2020. They are now part of the Family Care team for Iris Global and lead Iris Global UK, looking to develop the work of Iris in the UK. They have been married for 32 years, have four children, one son-in-law and a granddaughter.
Bob and Eileen Kilpatrick are retired from being in ministry after 27 years. During that time they founded The Gathering Place Christian Fellowship in Dorset, United Kingdom. They have been involved in Iris Global UK for many years and have visited Iris Global bases in Mozambique a number of times. They became directors in 2004. Their visits to Mozambique opened their eyes to the power of love through the ministry of Rolland, Heidi and their team as they ministered practically and spiritually to the needs of so many people. Their desire is to see people flow in the river of the Father’s love and for that love to overflow to others.
