Hi there, I’m a CMS (Church Mission Society) Mission Partner from the UK, first in Tanzania, now with the Taiwan Episcopal Church, based first at St. James’ Church, Taichung, then at St. John’s University, Taipei, and from January 2023 at St. John’s Cathedral, Taipei ~ serving in the church and kindergarten ministry of the Diocese of Taiwan.

This beautiful stained glass is at Advent Church on the campus of St. John’s University ~ do go and visit one Sunday; and of course – a big welcome to my blog!
