Greetings from Neil 

I was delighted to become Curate at the Parish of Three Saints and am looking forward to getting to know the congregations and the community over the next few years.  A Curate is a guest in a Parish and I hope I won't out stay my welcome!

My curacy will be different to many as I am 'self-supporting'.  This means that I am carrying on with my full-time job in social housing and so will mainly be in the parish on a Wednesday and Sunday.  

I have lived in Burnham-on-sea with my wife Jayne for over 20 years and attended St John's Church in Highbridge before joining you in the Parish of Three Saints.  

My journey to this point is quite different to Reverend Kevin's, I don't have a family history of church involvement.  I had been happily sat in the pews for 15 years, when God, very surprisingly, pointed a finger at me and called me to ordained ministry.  After two years of testing this calling with the diocese, I undertook my 'formation' (the first stage of training) at Sarum College in Salisbury starting at 2018 and finishing in June 2021.

If all goes to plan, I will be ordained as a Deacon at the end of September and then as a Priest at the end of June 2022.  I will be with you for four years as a curate and will then see where God is calling me.  

May God's blessings be with you.
