I am delighted to be looking after the parishes of Burbage, Shalbourne, Ham & Buttermere, within the Savernake Team. This is a particularly difficult time for us all with all church services cancelled. Although we are prohibited from gathering to worship together, I will (while I am able) regularly be visiting the parish churches of Burbage, Shalbourne, Ham & Buttermere.  I will be stopping there to pray for the communities. I would hugely appreciate you letting it be known that I'm doing this and asking people to share with me (confidentially of course) any particular people or situations that would appreciate being remembered in our prayers. Over the coming weeks we may sometimes feel lonely, but we are never alone………. It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.   Deuteronomy 31:8 Call me or email me at any time to keep me posted about any situations arising in the parishes. In the meantime - God bless you all, Colin

Born and raised a Christian, I started my training for priesthood in 1977. I trained in Birmingham, London and Toronto. After completing a master’s degree in Divinity, I was ordained deacon in Toronto in 1987 and as a priest in Wimbledon in 1988. I then worked on the Zimbabwe/Mozambique border as Priest-in-Charge of a large mission station. I took a break from ministry and became a Primary School Teacher, finishing as a Deputy Head before returning to ministry in 2005. I served a curacy at St Denys in Warminster as a self-supporting minister and continued as a stipendiary curate in Salisbury at St Thomas’. My first incumbency was as a Team Vicar in the Pewsey Vale Team and from there I joined the Savernake Team as Rector in July 2012.

Born into a military family in Tidworth. Was in Cyprus when the war broke out in 1974 and was evacuated back to the UK.  Spent four years in Germany and then moved back to the UK when my father left the Army. I’m not from a religious family; but started going to church at the age of 12 when I joined the local church choir. Became a Christian at a Youth for Christ event in Peterborough at the age of 17. First job was as a multiplex cinema manager and projectionist, then joined the Army to serve in the Royal Signals.  After 12 years service, I left the Army to pursue my vocation to the Priesthood. Trained at St Michael’s College in Llandaff, Cardiff, and was ordained deacon in 2010 at Christ Church, Oxford; priested at Dorchester Abbey, Oxfordshire, in 2011, serving my title at Carterton, Oxfordshire. Moved to the Savernake Team as Team Vicar in 2014 and love living in Wiltshire! I now also serve as Padre to the Wiltshire Army Cadet Force in addition to my parochial duties.

I have lived in Gt Bedwyn for 30 years and have been a member of All Saints Burbage Church congregation for around 24 years. I am married with 2 sons in their early twenties, one of whom has special needs. My early career centred around the role of Facilities Manager within some large corporations. In 2003, with some trepidation I joined my husband’s long established Metal Fabrication business as Office Manager and worked with him for 15 years until his retirement in 2018. I took on the role of Savernake Team Administrator in September 2018. I really love the varied aspects to this job and am gradually getting to know the friendly, welcoming and interesting people who work so hard for the Team. I have yet to visit all the churches but it is on my “to do” list!!
