I am a Church of England Priest and have served in three parishes in Portsmouth Deanery before moving to my current appointment just outside Sevenoaks. After a first curacy at Alverstoke, I worked as Assistant to the Rural Dean of Gosport and Deanery Education Worker. This latter job, which was a one off, five-year, appointment involved being available to the schools in the Deanery for support and advice. Most of the material on this website was developed in response to requests for training and support from schools during this time.
After this I became Priest in Charge of Christ Church, Gosport, and Diocesan Further Education Officer, building and sustaining the Church's work FE colleges.
Then love struck! Philip Le Bas appeared in my life. We were married on August 21st 2004, at Christ Church, and I moved to Sevenoaks in Kent, where he teaches Physics.  I am now Priest in Charge of St Peter and St Paul, Seal, a parish on the edge of Sevenoaks in Kent (South East corner of England)
I have two children from my first marriage. Michael is working for Ordnance Survey in Southampton.
Ruth, is
studying for a Masters degree in Philosophy, at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, and playing with a band , Cakes and Ale, in her spare time.
I am a keen gardener in my spare time, and I also have a great love for storytelling.
Work with children and young people has been a large part of my ministry so far. It had to be , because it was the only way of justifying spending so much time playing and so much money on children's books once my own children had grown out of such things! Chronologically I am ....years old (old enough to know better), but inside I am about eight and a half!
