Welcoming our new curate

We’re looking forward to the Ordination of our Curate, Jenny Warrington at Rochester Cathedral at 3pm on Saturday 28th September.

We’ll be celebrating with Jenny and her husband, Allan, on Sunday, 29th September with a Bring and Share Lunch after the 10.30am Service.

Here, Jenny tells us a little bit about herself and Allan:
Allan and I are looking forward to joining you in September as I take up my role as curate at St Paul’s with All Saints. My journey to ordination has been quite long. Twelve years ago, I felt called to study the bible and the seed was sown. I attended the London School of Theology for two years part-time and studied Theology, Worship and Music. Following this I became a Reader and then an LLM. At the time I was still working four days a week but during an LLM retreat was clearly called into full-time ministry. All the scriptures we looked at over that weekend were of people who said they couldn’t but God said, with me you can! Looking back God’s hand was always guiding and equipping me to be ready for this role. We are all called to live a life worthy of our calling and I am grateful for the gifts God has given me and indeed each one of us, which are for the building up of the body of Christ. We look forward to seeing what adventures God has for us, with you, in building His Kingdom in Chatham.Our sending church is Christ Church, Orpington although we were both part of a plant church on a local housing estate for four years and I spent 18 months at a joint benefice in Bromley as part of my ordination training. I have spent time in Africa on several short term missions and look forward to maintaining a link with the Bible college in Kondoa, Tanzania. I enjoy music and Allan enjoys running, badminton and table-tennis. So, if there are any musicians or sports men or women among you, do make yourselves known to us. We look forward to joining the parish and especially getting to know you and the local community. 
Every blessing, Jenny Warrington
