I am a pioneer ordinand with the diocese of Bath and Wells. My husband, Dean, and our two teenage sons are based in Ilminster, a rural town in south Somerset. We are part of the minster church and currently my role provides a great opportunity to explore what being Church in the community looks like to children and families who would not normally attend church. So far this has involved creating two community spaces: Munch - a cafe style gathering, and Saturday Supper, which offers a time of food and friendship as we explore and journey towards Christ together. I am dreaming big and hope that during my time at CMS I will be able to work on a vision that God has given for the town in the shape of a community hub that offers a children’s soft play centre among other things! Watch this space.
