Hello!  I’m Sarah and I am really excited to be your new Team Vicar.  I am married to Simon who is currently training to be a Reader in the Diocese and we are looking forward to meeting you and joining in with what God is doing in this team.

I have been in the Hereford Diocese since 2013 when I was ordained deacon and have served my curacy in the Ridgeway Benefice which is situated around the Bishop’s Castle area.  I worked in 5 churches, a couple of which are very deeply rural and we have one church which sits over the border in Wales.

I trained towards ordination at St John’s College Nottingham and prior to this I was a nurse for 13 years working predominantly in different areas of cancer care.  For the last few years of my nursing career I worked in cancer clinical trials in Derby and Burton Hospitals which was a job I loved.

My curacy has had many surprises for me in different ways and I look forward to joining you for the next chapter of our journey.
