Fr Alan Davies
Fr Alan Davies was ordained Deacon on 3rd July 2010 and Priest on 3rd July 2011.
He is a Self-Supporting Minister, SSM (formerly known as a Non-Stipendiary Minister, NSM), which meant combining ministerial duties with his job as a painter and decorator, until he retired from that in 2015.
Fr. Alan served firstly as Assistant Curate from 2010 until 2014, when he was Licensed as Associate Priest of the Benefice.
He is a 'homegrown' ordination candidate, having been associated with St Edmund's for a number of years, during which time he contributed an enormous amount to the life of the Church in lay ministry, together with his late wife Julie.
Before Ordination, he served for 10 years as a Churchwarden, and was Licenced as a Lay Reader in 2006 before starting his formation for the Priesthood a year later on the regional Ministerial Training Course.
