Greetings from our new curate.
Hi there! I’ve been asked to write a little something to introduce myself, so hopefully this doesn’t make for too dull reading!
I originally hail from the depths of Norfolk, and apart from a brief stint at Keele Uni to do my undergrad (History, if you’re wondering), I’ve always been drawn back to rural living – it’s just in my bones. After my undergrad I moved down to Kent, where I was a barmaid for some family-run pubs, whilst also working for one of the local stables. I had great fun being at uni and working these jobs, but I had a distinctive feeling that none of this was my ‘forever job’…
Going into the Church was something I definitely did not see coming for myself! I wasn’t raised in a religious household, and when I came to faith at university it felt that for every answer I found in Christianity it raised another three questions! Yet that’s exactly what I love about my faith and my vocation – my questions are never 100% sated, and it keeps driving me to find out more about God and the world.
I’m so excited to be the assistant curate for Kinnerley with Melverley, Knockin with Maesbrook and Maesbury (one day I’ll be able to spell them all right without having to look at my notes!). I’m very grateful to Chris for showing me the ropes over the next three years, and I’m very grateful to everyone who has been so friendly and already made me feel welcome in the different villages. Hopefully I can do you all justice in my ministry!
If you see me out and about, please do stop and say hi!
P.S. Of course, I’ll completely understand if Freddie (my trusty golden spaniel) gets the first hello...!
