Introducing Eliza Greenwell
My name is Eliza and I’m the new Church Care and Development Adviser within the Diocese of Norwich.
The role represents the perfect combination of my interests, administration experience and academic background and I can’t wait to get started. I studied BA History, Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham and MA Biblical Studies at King’s College London. I love visiting churches wherever I go and enjoy photographing churches which are redundant/abandoned; they each have a unique character and story to tell. Churches play an integral religious, social, cultural and historical role and facilitate key milestones within the lives of countless individuals. They are the symbol of unbroken traditions and enriched relationships both with God and with fellow parishioners. I am so grateful that God has led me to the Diocese of Norwich to work with these buildings and the local communities they serve.
