Children and Families Minister
I joined St Michael’s Church in February 2013, and have been employed as our Children and Families Minister since September 2014. I am also a Lay Reader, having been licensed since 2008.
I became a Reader while worshipping in the United Church of St Michael’s in Whaddon, and before that I worshipped at Trinity, Cheltenham.
I am wife to Bryan, mother to Luke, and stepmother to Tom and Charlotte, and chief dogwalker to Marco Polo.
I love being part of our leadership team, and encouraging everyone and anyone I know to understand a little bit more about the God who loves us and made us. In 2016, I became a Godly Play practitioner, and have been fascinated to see how Godly Play helps children (and adults actually) discover something of God inside of them.
I’m involved in leading our baptism courses, conducting thanksgivings, visiting schools, helping lead our parent and toddler groups – Praise & Play and OASIS Parents, overseeing our Sunday morning children’s groups (and teaching in Sparklers age 3-7s), confirmation groups and summer holiday club. I also love partnering with young people to help them develop their confidence and skills – and for them to teach me a thing or two! – through our internship programmes.
