Ordained deacon on 2 July 2023
I felt called to ordination when I was 21 in my final year at university studying neuroscience.
At the time I’d hoped to become a psychiatrist or do research to help enable people to become the fullest versions of themselves they could.
Becoming a priest very much felt like an extension of the hope I’d always had for my life: to see people flourish.
I’m particularly passionate about diversity in the church and seeing people who think differently and have had different experiences of life come together in community.
I’d love to see more of those not currently represented in church leadership supported to offer the gift of who they are.
My husband Jack and I are both from North Devon but have been involved in church planting in the midlands in recent years before my training for ordination at Trinity College Bristol.
I’m very excited to begin ordained ministry in Chesterfield at St Thomas Brampton.
