St. Wendreda's

March Cambridgeshire

Hi! My name’s Rev Ruth Clay and I am going to be the new team vicar in March, based at St Wendreda’s.

I am married to the wonderful Steve and we have 3 children - Hannah who is married Ruth Clay with some of her familyto Niklas in Germany, Joe who is a student, and Callum who will be starting 6th form in September.

Since qualifying as a special needs teacher in 1986, I have worked in a combination of community & youthwork, teaching and training roles for about 30 years, including being Head of a PRU (a pupil referral unit, for teenagers at risk of exclusion).

Since 2014 I have explored ministry and studied theology, and to my surprise, ended up getting ordained and serving God in Wolverhampton, as a curate!

I am passionate about down-to-earth mission and empowering and enabling everyone to play their part. I love family and food, creative arts, travelling and serving God in the everyday stuff of life (and being a vicar!)

I am looking forward to getting to know you and God’s plans as we work together to see God’s kingdom come in and through all the churches in March
