Jamie is the assistant curate of St George in the Meadows, Nottingham, following his ordination to the diaconate.
My name is Jamie and I trained for ordination at Ripon College Cuddesdon.
Prior to training for ordination I spent a number of years working with students in a non-Anglican framework before embarking on an intellectual and spiritual journey which led me both to become an Anglican and, a bit later, to embrace more fully the catholic aspects of Anglican ecclesiology. At various points also I have worked as a verger in Winchester Cathedral and spent some years as a private music teacher. I am currently in the midst of my Theology DPhil, which I have been working on for a few years and am carrying into my curacy. I hope to finish within about a year from now.
I am married to Lorna, and I have two small children, Rafe (2) and Rupert (1). We have never lived north of Oxford before so Nottingham is a new environment for us! Apart from that, I enjoy reading literature and history quite generally, and I am a big football fan, following Tottenham Hotspur.
I am very excited about ordination and the curacy. I hope to be able to learn about being a priest in the catholic tradition and much of what that means as well as being able to serve my parish well. I hope also for a smooth transition for my family to our new home.
