Welcome Kirrilee Reid

Revd Kirrilee ReidWe would like to give a warm welcome to the Revd. Kirrilee Reid who has joined the Eastry-Woodnesborough Benefice as Interim Priest, on a part-time basis. We look forward to her ministry and support during our interregnum.

Kirrilee has just moved down from Scotland, where she was Spiritual Director of a Christian Retreat Centre. Before that she was Chaplain and Refugee Project Officer in Northern France, licensed through Canterbury. Originally from Canberra, Australia, Kirrilee now lives in Dover with her husband, Ewan (also from Canberra), and their daughter Milly. Ewan is a teacher in a school in Dover. They also have two grown-up sons living in Glasgow. Kirrilee is passionate about social justice issues, and in her spare time (what little there is of it) her hobbies are music, creative writing, art and travel.

The post of Interim Priest, or Vicar, is three days a week, so we have Kirrilee’s time on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays plus Sunday services including baptisms, and occasional weddings and funerals on other days. We would ask everybody to respect her working hours, and not expect responses to emails, etc. on other days. We will publish her telephone number soon, she is currently waiting on installation, but for now Kirrilee can be contacted by email on kirrilee.reid@gmail.com or through the benefice office. Welcome Kirrilee!
