 It has been an exciting journey so far … I cannot believe the absolute privilege I have in being able to serve God and minister to his people.
 My early years were spent in Croydon and then later with within the Medway Towns,. Before ordination I was a hairdresser and then an administrator at Aylesford Priory, but most importantly a mum. Many of the skills I have learnt both in the workplace and in the home are incredibly transferrable and essential for parish ministry.
I love to study and prior to ordained ministry training I studied theology for six years at St Augustine ‘s College of Theology and after a period of discernment continued with them on a full time mixed mode course to complete my training. This meant that for two years alongside study I served within a variety of churches for sixteen hours a week. This has given me a broad understanding and appreciation for a variety of worship styles and ministries.
I served my curacy  at St John’s Church  in Welling, where I learnt a great deal about what it means to be incarnational, being part of  church family  and ministering  to and alongside  the local community.
In my spare time I enjoy all things creative and look forward to ‘creating’ lots of things and memories in the coming years here in Snodland.
 I am married to Steve and have two daughters , Harriet  18 , and Isobel 13, and we have a dog called Coco, As a family we are looking forward  to our new life in Snodland as we serve the parish of All Saints with Christ Church .

AN HISTORICAL NOTE:

The Rector of a parish is charged by the Bishop at his licensing with the care or ‘cure’ of the souls in his or her parish. He is historically the ‘curate’. If you look at the old 1662 Prayer Book intercessions made during the Communion Service, you will notice that we pray for “all bishops and curates” with no mention of vicars or rectors.
