Originally from Middlesex, Rev’d Chris returned to England in June when her husband, Martin, became the Vicar of St. Mark’s, Reigate.  They have lived and worked in Cardiff for the past 20 years.  Chris studied at Cardiff University and St Michael’s Theological College, before being ordained into the Church in Wales.  Chris is broadly experienced as a parish priest and in the wider church has co-ordinated lay training in the Diocese of Llandaff.  Before ordination Chris worked as a lay parish visitor, a lay hospital chaplain as well as doing a variety of jobs in offices and the caring professions.

“I’m excited about working in Kingswood and look forward to becoming part of the community.  Each step of the way has confirmed to me that this is where God wants me to be and I feel there is work God has in mind for me to do here.  I encourage everyone to stop and say hello if they see me out and about.”

Chris was Licensed at St. Andrew’s Church, Kingswood on 2nd December 2014 by the Bishop of Croydon, The Rt. Rev’d Jonathan Clark.
