I have always believed Jesus existed, however in my early twenties my faith became real as I grasped the truth that Jesus actually did die and rise to life again. I realised that Jesus could change my life and He did and does. I was born in London Colney, St Albans, but have lived up north for many years. I trained for Ordination at Cranmer Hall, Durham and was ordained in 2003, doing my curacy in Hull. During my curacy, I became involved with New Wine and have had a number of roles in New wine, at present I look after the Ordained Women, I have found New Wine a source of inspiration and support over the years. After my curacy, I was appointed Vicar of two churches near Scarborough and had the privilege of leading a church into growth. After six and a half years I left Seamer, Scarborough and I was appointed Rector of Billingham working with five churches and a team bringing them together as one parish and developing mission in the parish. I am now blessed to be the Vicar of St James, New Barnet, this is a great church family to be part of, come and join us.
