St Chad's Church Patchway

Revd Howard Jameson

Howard and FaithFaith and I arrived at St Chad's in November 2012, being the first residents on the Hammonds Grove part of the Charlton Hayes development.

We've loved being involved right from the start of a new community coming together, and have been active amongst in welcoming our neighbours and building links with the existing population.

Having spent time in Bristol from 2000 to 2002 it is good to be back on relatively familiar territory, and in our intervening years we have worked near the Dorset coast and in the commuter belt outskirts of Bath. We have enjoyed getting to know the Church and the local Community, and are excited about the possibilities here in Patchway.

Prior to ordination I worked in a variety of Engineering companies and was involved in the youth work in a number of Churches, as well as being on the PCC and acting as Church Warden.

I write on my blog when I have the time, and wrote about our trip across Europe at

We have two boys, Tim and Ewan.
