“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'.
