Julia Evans is a Licensed Lay Minister and is involved in leading and speaking at St Paul's and children and families work. She is now retired from primary school teaching which gives her time to be involved in the various programmes at St. Paul's. Julia loves the wide and varied friendships and community of St. Paul's, and is fortunate to have her 2 children living close by with whom she and her husband Martin spend time with, particularly her 8 year old granddaughter Wren who teaches her much about God and life. Unfortunately she also likes food and all things sparkly but tries to contain both! She is currently learning to play the piano, a long time wish, and in the hope of keeping her mind 'nimbleish.'
Licensed Lay Minister
Christina Barry has been involved in the life of St Paul’s church and school since joining the parish in 1985. Life events in recent years led to a ministry in pastoral care and she is now a Licensed Lay Minister. Christina supports ministry with the elderly at St Paul’s in this time of growing need and vulnerability and has developed a good relationship between the church and St George’s Court Nursing Home. Christina has a keen eye for detail and is a great asset on any committee. Christina is still active as a singing teacher and has two adult children living abroad who she enjoys visiting when it is possible.
