Revd Anna Carrington We welcome Revd Anna Carrington who joins Dane and Trent Circuit in September.  Revd Anna will have pastoral responsibility for Holmes Chapel and Goostrey.  She introduces herself as follows:

Hi, my name is Anna Carrington, and I will be joining the Dane and Trent circuit in September as a probationer minister.  I currently live in Farnham, Surrey, with my husband Paul and our 9-year-old son Elishama.

I have been studying at the Queens Foundation in Birmingham for the past 3 years on the part-time programme. This has involved travelling to Birmingham roughly once a month for residential weekends, as well as a week at Easter, and regular Zoom seminars during the week.

For the last two years, I have been on the circuit-based learning pathway, which has involved gaining practical experience during the week in the Wey Valley Circuit in addition to my studies. This pathway has allowed me to experience a range of ministry-related activities, as well as being involved in the multi-faith chaplaincy team at the University of Surrey.

As a family, we enjoy watching movies and listening to music. Elishama and Paul both play the guitar, and I am trying (!) to teach myself to play the bass guitar. We are also big fans of musical theatre, with Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera up there as our favourites.

We are really looking forward to joining the circuit and getting to know you all.

Coming up soon . . .
