Katie has been a Methodist all her life and lived in the north-west for most of it. She grew up in Knutsford and after studying maths at university spent 21 years working as an algorithm developer in industry.
Katie entered the Methodist ministry in September 2020 and was ordained as a presbyter in June 2022. She continues to be part of the United Stockport Circuit team in her first post and is enjoying helping the churches develop their post-pandemic vision and encouraging the spirituality of the congregations through services, bible studies and new initiatives.
Katie believes in helping people know that they are loved by God and finding "life in all its fullness" in relationship with him. She hopes to help people see that Christian life is not about being boring but about finding joy in the small things, sharing in community and having a sure hope for the future.
