Miriam became the curate in the Parish of Bro Ardudwy Ministry Area in 2015. Miriam is originally from Formby near Liverpool, but came to study at the university in Aberystwyth in 2004, and has been in Wales ever since. She has ministered as a lay person in Aberystwyth and Lisvane, Cardiff. She also spent 2 years training at St. Michael’s College in Llandaff and is married to Darren. Miriam lists her pastimes as being a Brownie leader, playing the piano, learning Welsh and eating cake!
Reflecting on the last 12 months prior to being ordained Priest in 2016, Miriam said, ‘It has been a time of change – after moving house and beginning work in a new place, my husband, Darren, and I welcomed our daughter Anwen into the world. We have enjoyed her first seven months tremendously. Life as a curate and a new mother requires good time management, a supportive family and understanding congregations, but is totally possible and provides many joyful opportunities. I’m looking forward to fulfilling my calling as a priest in Bro Ardudwy.
