Revd. Allie Kerr, Vicar

INTRODUCING REVD. ALLIE KERR

I am delighted to be the new vicar of St Cuthbert’s and St Aidan’s and am really looking forward to getting to know all of you.

My husband Adrian and I have 4 daughters, Natalia 24, Bekah 22, Jess 21 and Iona 19, our family also includes Andy, Mat, Zena (our daughter’s partners) and Joseph our 3-year-old grandson.
I have been a vicar since 2009, first in Poole and for the last 7 years on the Isle of Wight. In addition to parish responsibilities I have been Area Dean, Associate Mission Development Officer and have served in various roles including Diocesan Synod, Bishop’s Council, and Homeless Shelter Co-ordinator. Before ordination I worked in retail management.

I discovered faith aged 17, my church background is eclectic including Roman Catholic, non-denominational churches, an ecumenical church and ranges from very informal to much more traditional. I became an Anglican when feeling called to ordination because of the mission opportunities and the privilege of supporting people for baptisms, weddings and funerals.

I am so looking forward to working with you all to share the good news of Jesus with our community through our words and actions. I am looking forward to seeing what God will do in St Cuthbert’s, St Aidan’s and our wider community in the next few years.

Allie Kerr.

Thank you, God, for answering our prayers and sending us Allie Kerr to be our new Vicar.
