Kate is thrilled to be coming home to Coventry Diocese and to parish ministry renewed and refreshed by a ‘gap year’ as a member of the Scargill community offering Christian hospitality in the Yorkshire Dales. Kate has been ordained for 22 years serving in parish churches in Rugby then Royston and then as vicar of Wellesbourne and Walton for 13 years, and Area Dean of Fosse. Before ordination she worked as an analytical chemist for the pharmaceutical company Glaxo. She grew up (and still has family) in Kenilworth. To relax Kate enjoys a bit of cycling, sketching, eating with friends, and visiting South Africa.
