We are pleased to announce that Rev Natasha Brady will be licenced and starting work in our parish on Monday 13 August, although her service of induction will not take place until Thursday 6 September.

Paul and Simon met with Natasha on Thursday afternoon and asked her a few questions – a summary is below and the 6-minute recording will be uploaded in the next few days.

Natasha is currently Assistant Curate at St Mary’s, Rushden, Northants, having been ordained in 2015.  She is married to Jamie, and has 4 children: Sam, Elissa, Megan and Imogen.  Jamie is studying for a maths degree after a career in economics, Sam is a teacher in Kent, Elissa is at theological college and Megan and Imogen are taking their A levels this summer (so good luck to them!)

Natasha came to faith when aged 8, she decided to take herself to her local church and then found a renewal in her 20s after she had started a family and felt the need to be part of the church family again too.  After being involved in her local churches, and running away from ordination for a while, she was finally told to ‘just get on with it’ by another minister and is very glad that she took that advice.

We finished by asking what attracted Natasha to Stoke Poges – “I read on the profile that ‘the door is open – will you come in?’  That made me read more, and following a conversation with Rod Cosh, our Area Dean, I  took his advice to come down and have a look.  We couldn’t stop smiling from the moment we got out of the car at St Giles and I just knew that this was where God was calling me.”

Natasha will be coming as a visitor to our lunch and APCM on Sunday 29 April – so please come and welcome her as she prepares to make the move to Stoke Poges.
