HAEBEA: September 2017
Hello from Revd Teresa
Revd Teresa Wynne was licensed by the Bishop of St Albans as Church of England Team Vicar in the Cheshunt Team Ministry with special responsibility for Christ Church, Waltham Cross on Monday 6th November at 7.30pm in Christ Church, Waltham Cross
Well, I'm not sure where to start... Before I was ordained we lived in Loughton and I have been a police officer in the Metropolitan Police, and a primary school teacher (Deputy Head at Theydon Bois Primary School).
I served my curacy in the parishes of Takeley and Little Canfield (near Stansted Airport) and I am currently the priest-in-charge of St Leonard's Church, Lexden, Colchester, and have been here seven years.
I am married to Martin, also a former policeman, who now works part time as an undertaker. I have two grown up children (Thomas and Siobhan) and three granddaughters, Emilia (2 and a half), Eleana (one and a half) and Charlotte (nine months) — you'll probably be seeing a fair bit of them!
In addition to being a parish priest I am also a Spiritual Director and a Bishop's Selection Adviser.
Martin is also a white water kayaker — so is very excited about the Lea Valley White Water Centre being on his doorstep; we like walking — and often go on walking holidays and we have two completely bonkers Springer Spaniels!
I look forward to meeting you all in November. With every blessing.

It was a...
