I had to retire from full time work at the age of 30 due to ill health. After some time I became an Authorised Civil Celebrant, and also an Ordained Minister.
I love conducting weddings, namings, Baptisms, etc, but I also feel very privileged being able to visit bereaved families and oversee the farewell to their loved ones.
I am in the process of setting up a Pastoral Care Ministry - St Luke Ministries. I hope to be able to help people who believe in God, but don't have a church affiliation.
My sister and I are renting out The Sanctuary to help cover the mortgage while we have moved in to care for our 91 year old mother just down the road. It's also great to have a spare house available for family and friends to stay when they visit.
