Amy, St Mellitus North West

Hello! I’m Amy, I’m 31 (32 in October!) and I’m about to start training for ordination at St Mellitus college North West. I’m married to my fab hubby Charles and we have five children aged 12,11,9,8, and 7 years old. I’ve recently finished a Masters Degree in creative writing and previously studied for a journalism degree at the University of Salford.

I will be studying full time at St Mellitus college’s campus in Liverpool cathedral, and serving in a work placement at St Mary’s in the Baum and St Chad’s church in Rochdale under Rev Mark Coleman’s supervision.

My calling began before I stepped foot into formal church worship. I have been a Christian all my life but had not experienced being part of a church before. I experienced a life changing dream that led me to quit my day job and go back to university. After I began studying, I stumbled into St James church in Ashton-Under-Lyne after feeling like I needed to get my children baptised. As soon as I began worshiping with the congregation I realised that following Jesus in his church was the missing piece of my life.

My calling steadily grew and I felt the need to try and use my skills as a writer to communicate my love of Christ to others. I began writing a Christian blog and became more involved at church. Soon I was delivering talks to the afternoon service and leading small prayer groups. I had never felt as alive as I did and do when serving in Christ’s name.

Being called to ordained ministry and having my calling confirmed by the Bishop’s advisory panel felt hugely humbling and exciting. I step forward in this new stage of my journey knowing that Jesus will be with me and all the other ordinands who are making the same steps as me
