Yare Valley Churches

Dom, our new Curate writes

Dom writes:
“I am married to Cath (who is a Health Play Specialist, author and many other things besides) and we have 4 children: Tara (16), Jonathan (10),  Peter (8) and Hattie (4)                                                                                                

We have lived in Bristol for many years, and I am about to complete my training at Trinity College before we move. I am passionate about
mission within communities, and working with people who may sometimes get missed by traditional community or church outreach work.                       

I feel really excited to be coming to Braydeston, Brundall and
Postwick as your new curate when I am ordained in July.
“I am originally from Suffolk, but have lived in Bristol for 16 years since getting married, having worked in both Aberdeen and Shropshire along the way. My background is in working with children and families (I have a degree in Play) although latterly I have worked developing community services in a large housing estate in Bristol. I love story-telling, and helping people to make connections with God and with those around them.

I love creating spaces and helping to build relationships where God's Good News can be shared, and people can feel like they belong.

“In my spare time I have set myself a challenge to try to find a cake I don't like (still searching!), drinking tea and watching movies. I love spotting modern parables within movies and stories: lessons for the church, messages about God and insights into faith even though they were not intended!
“As a family, we are nervous but excited about moving to Norfolk and seeing what God has in store for us all - young and not so young. I look forward to working within the Yare Valley Churches and I pray that I can learn a lot by being part of the team.”
