I began my working life as a librarian in the public sector which proved to be a good training ground for meeting all kinds of people and wonderful preparation for full-time ministry. After training at Wesley House, Cambridge, I did a one year course in Cardiff where I met Robert and we got married in 1995.
I have been a minister for 19 years and served in Gravesend and Bristol before moving to the Oxford Circuit in 2008 where I have pastoral charge of a variety of churches in the Eastern Mission Partnership. Robert and I enjoy living in the manse and love pottering around in the garden. Music is one of my favourite hobbies - I play piano, organ and guitar and I sing contralto in a local choir. Robert’s hobbies centre around mending and fixing things, skills which are very useful in his work as a Mechanical Engineering Technician. Both of us enjoy travel, going to the theatre and attending concerts.
Rosemary was a minister in Bristol before coming to the Oxford circuit in September 2008. She has pastoral responsibility for three of the churches in the Eastern mission partnership: Lime Walk, Kennington and Rose Hill.
