Welcome to Kidlington!

July 3rd 2016

We are all delighted to welcome Revd Dr Laura Biron-Scott to the Parish as our new curate.

She was ordained Deacon in Christ Church Cathedral by the Acting Bishop of Oxford, the Rt Revd Colin Fletcher, on Saturday 2nd July. Laura is on the far right.

She trained for ministry at Westcott House in Cambridge and the South East Institute of Theological Education in Canterbury. During her training, she carried out placements in Munich and in Charlottesville, Virginia, as a visitor at Virginia Theological Seminary. Laura was earlier an academic at the Universities of Cambridge, Virginia and then Kent, specialising in legal and political philosophy.

And here she is pictured — fortunately still smiling — after her first service (and sermon) on the 3rd July at St Mary's Kidlington.

A big welcome to Laura, husband Dominic, and daughter Zoe.
