"I came here 8 years ago from The School of Theology, Sewanee, TN (USA) where I taught Contextual Education, including courses on rural ministry, to ordinands. I’ve always loved rural areas and sustainable agriculture, so I also work as a relief milker. I love my “big girls”. I live in the village with my very naughty dog, Lily."
Revd. Julie Cartwright. Tel:
Originally born in Devon but moved with my parents to London when I was a child. After a career in Finance, mainly involved in fraud prevention within a number of high street banks and finance houses I retired and moved to Devon with my wife nearly 4 years ago.
I tend to get involved with the financial aspects of church life, having been treasurer at two previous churches and involved in finance and fundraising at several others due to my background. However I think that finance is secondary to Community and Mission which I feel are the important parts of church that I am keen to promote.
"We moved to Stibb Cross nearly 20 years ago leaving behind a career in IT to move into teaching. Although a non-conformist by nature and background, I trained as a Reader about 10 years ago. Whilst based in Shebbear, I help out across the team. I’m always seeking new (actually sometimes they’re ancient) ways of understanding our faith and fresh ways of expressing our worship."
