Deacon Jenny

Hello I’m Jenny. I was born and brought up in North Cornwall. I started preaching as a teenager and went on to  work with children and youth at the Church as well as helping to set up and run a toddler group in our local town. I have also worked within a nursing home for the disabled and the elderly and also at a museum helping to organise and run history workshops for schools.

I trained for ministry at The Queen’s Foundation in Birmingham. Whilst there I enjoyed living and working with people from different backgrounds and denominations. My first stationing was to West Yorkshire. Whilst there I worked with four different Churches developing mission and childrens’ work and spirituality and pastoral work.

Following my probationary period, I was ordained as a diaconal minister in 2019.A diaconal minister is a minister who is also a member of a religious order, the Methodist Diaconal Order.

I moved to the Redhill and East Grinstead Circuit  this Autumn with my husband Mervyn and our family dog, Buster. We have four adult children and two grandchildren. Our eldest two children, a son and a daughter live in Cornwall and our youngest two daughters have stayed in Yorkshire.

I look forward to working with you all and seeing what God has planned that we can join in with together.

AJ is grateful for a transfer from Bedford to Crawley B&Q, and we are enjoying finding our way round, wondering at the beauty of the area and the warmth of its people.

I look forward to spending time with you all, sharing life, faith and fellowship, and all the twists and turns of life as we each walk the road ahead of us.

    Grant us, O Holy Spirit, wisdom and understanding that we may receive your light; prudence and strength that we may persevere in faith; knowledge and awe that we may rest in you alone, fear and delight that we may rejoice in your love. Amen.Bonaventura (c.1217-1274)Loving Lord, help us to be faithful witnesses to the truth we have received from you. Sustain us as we seek to be a welcoming community open to all. Help us as we seek to bring a message of hope where there is fear, joy where there is sadness, and faith where there is doubt. Empower us by your Holy Spirit to share your love with the whole community by our words and our deeds. Amen.Richard Hall, Isle of Man District Chair
