Laura Purnell - Curate

Laura was welcomed as curate at St Faith's on Sunday 1st July, following her ordination as a deacon the previous day in Norwich Cathedral. Here is an article written for the Church Newsletter in which she introduces herself.


Hello St Faith’s.  I am Laura Purnell and I am very excited about coming to join you at the end of June as your curate.  I am sure we will get to know each other very well over the next few years but just a few words of introduction.  I am married to Martin and through him inherited 5 grown up children.  Some live quite nearby which will be a joy and a blessing, but others are farther afield, the furthest being Lee in Tasmania.  We have eleven grandchildren who take up much of our spare time and we are sure you will see many of them with us from time to time.  We also have a large extended family on both sides.  Mine are mainly in Lincolnshire and we expect visits from my sisters and our nieces and nephews also.

I have spent the last two years training at Ridley Hall in Cambridge.  This has meant a very early morning on a Monday and then a long Friday afternoon commute home.  Curacy and the move to Gaywood will mean that Martin and I are in the same house again which we are both very much looking forward to.

Martin and I have many interests but together we like to cook a meal and sit down to enjoy it together.  We also enjoy a trip to the theatre or cinema.  Another interest is that of steam trains.  I like to find a cosy carriage and sit in a corner with the paper and crossword whilst Martin can enjoy the whole experience and take pictures which he may then draw or paint.  We both like to keep fit and so I apologise in advance if I run (well jog slowly) passed you looking like a beetroot, out of breath, earphone in and don’t see you.  I promise it is not intentional and should you see me ambling through town in normal clothes with enough breath to talk, I’ll happily stop for a chat or a coffee and cake.

On that note, as you welcome us, Martin and I are looking forward to welcoming you to our home as we get to know you and the parish.  See you soon!
