Text block 1

I was born and grew up in Cardiff. In 1999 I graduated with a Bachelor of Divinity from Cardiff University. Due to my maiden name, I was one of the last graduates in the last century.After graduation I became a part time theology lecturer working for Cardiff University, Lampeter University and in, what was, Trinity College Carmarthen. In addition to this I also worked as an external marker for Spurgeon's Theological College in London and delivered courses for the Workers Education Association.For me theology has been about equipping the Church and its members to know more about its faith. This is what led me to academic study and teaching. I was ordained Deacon in Llandaff Cathedral in June of 2009. In this month I also gained a Master of Theology from Cardiff University.I was priested in Llandaff Cathedral in June 2010. I have served in a variety of parishes in both the Diocese of Llandaff and the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon.During my time in the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon I was also chaplain to the Air Training Cadets and chaplain to the Ospreys Women rugby team.In 2011, I became Diocesan Director of Education in Swansea and Brecon. This involved working with the Church schools in the Diocese. I finished this work when I moved to my current position in 2017.

Ministerial Interests

Ministry excites me and training people for this is an immense privilege. To see the ways that we grow and develop in faith and in our work is wonderful.In more recent times I have become very interested in the inclusion of those with disabilities in Churches, and also the New Testament, Anglican worship, disability theology and learning support for those with learning differences.

My work at St Padarn's

In my work at St.Padarn’s I am a member of the Formation for Licensed Ministry team. In this role I support those training for licensed ministry in the Church in Wales. This involves regular meetings with candidates to discuss their formation. I take services in the chapel and also at our residential events. I am responsible for organising worship at residential events and I assist candidates in arranging services. I teach and am module leader for both ‘Introducing the New Testament’ and, ‘Introducing Anglican Worship.’ I am also personal tutor to everyone studying for the BTh and a link with our facilitators. I am part of the learning support team providing learning support plans for students and candidates with learning differences.
