Who am I ?

I trained to be a Stipendiary Vicar in the Church in Wales St David's Diocese and was ordained as a Deacon in June 2018 in St Davids Cathedral, Pembrokeshire, Wales. I was the first Indian woman to have been ordained in the Church in Wales.

I was born and brought up in Chennai, India and is now married to a Welsh boy Julian and have a 6 yr old boy Dylan and have been living in the UK for 15 years. I moved to Wales in 2010.

 

I was brought up in a very pious Christian family and have been involved in church and church outreach programs all my life and enjoy doing them.

My particular passion is to help churches to be at the heart of the community and to be seen to make a difference in people’s lives. I am very interested in developing youth ministry, and attracting more young families and children to the church.

I enjoy music especially being married to Julian who himself is a singer, songwriter, music producer, You Tube channel presenter and author. I enjoy walking in the countryside especially with my Siberian husky Rossi who is 9 years old, cooking, baking, reading, singing, writing, volunteering and enjoying spending time with my family.
