The Rev Ray Yates is now retired.
Assistant Priest, Reverend Janet Knox
I am a part-time Assistant Priest an I have lived in Quinton for over 30 years and I love being part of the community here. I especially enjoy being out in the streets, shops and schools chatting with people. In my spare time I enjoy singing in Choirs and also sometimes maybe too early in the morning – which can annoy Ray!
Other things which make me happy are my family (I am thrilled to have four grandchildren), friends, food, and holidays in Scotland.
One of my favourite Bible verses is from Psalm 34 verse 18: ‘The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’ Having been through some tough times in life I am overwhelmingly grateful for God being my Rock at all times.
