I’m grateful that no tear is ever wasted by God
Fay Price: to be ordained deacon in July 2022
My home town is Cheltenham in Gloucestershire and I have was hugely privileged to grow up in a Christian home.
I had various life challenges and got a bit angry with God in my teens, but God continued to pursue me and I returned to church age 20 and sensed a call to ordination in the first year of my return to faith, so have been carrying the call for about 22 years now!
It’s a delight to start my curacy at St Alkmund's this year and hope that God will use me as he sees fit!
I have a career background in theatre in education and education administration which involved my last five years prior to ordination working for the Diocese of Gloucester education team.
I am passionate about helping people to understand something of the depth of God’s love for them and the world and am motivated by discipleship, mission and supporting people to draw close to Christ in the midst of all types of suffering and grief.
This is much of my own personal testimony and I believe it’s part of why God has called me to His church.
I’m grateful that no tear is ever wasted by God.
Other passions include, in no particular order: coffee, cheese, prayer, my cat Bundle, my family and gorgeous God children, lego, and reading.
I also have a hugely eclectic music taste which can make people chuckle. Does anyone else remember and love the Wombles?!
Favourite hymn: Great is Thy Faithfulness and favourite modern worship song is Way Maker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, because that’s the God I know and can testify about!
Favourite Bible passage: Isaiah 61 - Sums the gospel up beautifully and sums up my journey with God, too!
