Sarah Jones writes; I came to Forest Edge when I was first ordained in 2004 to serve my curacy; when that time was finished I realised that I loved it so much here that I asked for the Bishop's permission to stay as an Associate Priest. I really enjoy being part of these village communities, and sharing in the cycle of life as we journey along together.
If you believe all that you see in the media, you might mistakenly think that the church is becoming irrelevant in people's lives. I feel really strongly that we are being given a huge opportunity to gather up all we hold dear about 'church', to meet all the challenges this 21st century gives us, and by the grace of the Holy Spirit move forward together to show people on a daily basis just how important God is in all our lives. I think it's all really exciting!!
I also love being an ordained Nurse Practioner, how lucky am I, having not one, but TWO jobs that are so fulfilling!?
Oh, the other thing is that I am a great rugby fan. I am a season ticket holder for Saracens. Which leads to some interesting conversations...................."
