Stanley and his wife Catherine began attending CBC in 1995, having been greatly involved, particularly in youth work at their previous church in Ballygomartin. Sadly Catherine was called home to glory in 2014 very suddenly.
Stanley was elected an Elder in 2005. Having worked for the Fire Service for 33 years, through some of the darkest days in Northern Ireland’s history, he retired in 2003. He is a member of the Praise Team and enjoys playing guitar. He is an Ulster rugby season ticket holder, enjoys golf, and the music of the late Rory Gallagher. Although his worst nightmare would be being stuck in a car being made to listen to country music!
