Hi, my name's Gael Browne and I've lived in Derby my whole life! With a background in NHS administration and having previously worked for other churches in the city, it's a real privilege and joy to serve the Church Community here in the parish of St Paul's and St Nick's. Wife to Adam and mummy to Esther, when I'm not in the office I'm at home looking after my little family.

Children and Family Worker

Hello my name is Anna. I have been living in Bedford for the last 6 ½ years training and working as a youth worker but I have lived in a lot of places (including Australia briefly) so it’s lovely to come back to Derby where I did most of my schooling at Curzon and Eccclesbourne.

Dawn.jpgCurate: Revd Dawn Knight

My name is Dawn. Before my ordination I worked as a Registered Nurse and was a licensed Reader in a church in South Derbyshire. I was born in London, but moved to the Midlands when I was 21. I have an interest in chaplaincy, making Christ known in both the workplace and the wider community, and walking alongside others as they journey through the ups and downs of life. I enjoy an annual retreat to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Celtic Christianity. I am also a wife and mum, and live with my husband, German Shepherd dog and cat! I enjoy playing the flute and dance, if I have any spare time.
