"I came here 8 years ago from The School of Theology,
Sewanee, TN (USA) where I taught Contextual Education, including courses on
rural ministry, to ordinands. I’ve always loved rural areas and sustainable
agriculture, so I also work as a relief milker. I love my “big girls”. I live
in the village with my very naughty dog, Lily."

“We moved to Stibb Cross nearly 20 years ago leaving
behind a career in IT to move into teaching. Although a non-conformist by
nature and background, I trained as a Reader about 10 years ago. Whilst based
in Shebbear, I help out across the team. I’m always seeking new (actually
sometimes they’re ancient) ways of understanding our faith and fresh ways of
expressing our worship.”
" I have lived in the area for over 50 years now and rural
North Devon is a very special place for me. Over the years I have been involved
with the Churches in the team in various ways, mostly with Guides and Youth
Fellowships. I trained as a Reader in the late 1990's and enjoy being involved
with services in all the Churches in the Team. In recent years I have been
living in Shebbear with my terrier dog,' Boris'.
