Each of the new ordinands has shared a little of their story:

Charlotte Eagles

I am originally from Norwich. I returned here three years ago after living in a variety of places. I am excited to be back and working in this area as Norwich has a special place in my heart. I am married with two children and I have a background in working in the NHS as an Occupational Therapist specialising in working with people with mental health issues. I am passionate about making Jesus known, and seeing the difference that he makes in the lives of those who get to know him. I will be specifically working in the area of Cringleford!

Iain Grant

I’m delighted to be moving to Norwich Diocese with my family and swarm of cats. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed studying at Ripon College Cuddesdon and am looking forwards to the new adventures ahead. I grew up in the Highlands of Scotland before moving to Bedfordshire and it is a joy to be shifting into Norfolk. 

Jamie Wyllie

Melissa Snell

I have lived in Norwich for 32 years. For the last seven years I have worked as a health visitor and prior to this worked for various small Christian charities. I am married to Simon and have two grown up children and when I have some spare time I like walking, dancing and baking. I love Norwich and think it is a beautiful city so I am really looking forward to serving my curacy right in the city centre.

Jonathan Richardson

Jonathan is the Children, Youth and Families Development Officer at the Diocese of Norwich and is serving in the Thetford Team Ministry.
