Welcome to the leighton family

We are excited to welcome Revd Simon Leighton as our curate and also welcome his lovely family.

"We’re the Leightons and we’re excited to be joining St Mary’s! As a family we enjoy cooking from scratch, trying to grow vegetables in our garden (the cheeky slugs are our arch enemy!) and music. Simon is a third order Franciscan and loves a good book, riding his mountain bike and playing guitar. He is passionate about exploring what it means to follow Jesus, finding wholeness, joy and deeper identity and purpose In him. Simon was ordained priest last Summer after training at trinity college. He worked at Bristol university before this, processing lecturer’s expense claims amongst other things.  Joanna is a musician and loves to sing, work with choirs and empower and encourage others through teaching music. She has been the music director at St Mary’s Stoke Bishop for the last five years, taking on a reduced role after Jeremy was born focusing on the choir. Jo loves nothing more than finding a good bargain in B&M foods and getting to know new people.  We have two small children who keep life interesting and eventful as they explore the world and grow into the people God made them to be."
