Curate on placement: Josie Goodwin


Later in January Josie Goodwin will be coming on a final year placement for six weeks.  She writes, “Married to Mark, with two teenage children, I’m a third year curate in the Diocese, currently serving the people of the Benefice of Stow, Condicote and the Swells.  My placement at St Philip and St James is part of my ongoing training, presenting an opportunity for ministry in a church that’s quite different to my current parishes.  I’m very much looking forward to being part of leading worship and experiencing something of the different groups and activities at St Philip and St James.  Prior to my ordination as a priest I trained at WEMTC, and before that I had a very happy career in Human Resources management.  I’m looking forward to meeting you all.”
