I’m Jane and I’m really excited to be with you as Children and Families Minister for St Johns Church here in Swalecliffe, with Chestfield too!

I’m married to David and we have two children, Ollie, 17 and Lucy, 14. We have a couple of dogs as well as a cat, 2 rabbits, 3 guinea pigs and lots of fish! I’m a fan of soap operas, Strictly, films and reading.

I believe God loves everyone from the youngest to the oldest and I’m looking forward to working alongside children and families here, helping them to know God’s love for each of them, both individually and as families. Being part of a family is amazing, lots of fun and laughter and making memories but there is the balance of sleepless nights, working and all the other commitments we have as parents; we know it can make family life a challenge.

I’m passionate about children, families and communities working together with everyone involved and people being alongside each other to help and support each other. I love it when generations come together, enjoy being in each other’s company and care for  each other.

I’m hoping to get to meet many of you over the Christmas period and I’m particularly looking forward to welcoming children and families into church for the crib services on Christmas Eve afternoon, they are a really magical start to Christmas celebrations and it’s good to take some time out to remind ourselves of what it’s all about!

If you have any ideas of what we could offer at St Johns or would like to meet up and chat, please feel free to get in touch, my contact details are below.


I look forward to meeting you soon.
