Rev Dave Willis
Dave and Sarah-jane came to Midhurst in November 2013 from Crawley where Dave served his curacy. They have two children, Poppy and Jacob and a springer spaniel named Luna. Dave trained for ministry at Rippon College Cuddesdon and was ordained in 2010.
Dave has spent most of his life in Sussex, growing up in Middleton-on-sea and going to secondary school in Chichester. When he left school, Dave spent a gap-year working for the Youth and Children’s department of the Diocese of Chichester and later on was employed as a full-time youth worker at St Andrew’s Burgess Hill.
Dave and his family love living in Midhurst and getting out for walks in the countryside with Luna.
Youth & Children’s Minister
Hi I’m Beth,and I am the Youth and Children’s Minister here at Midhurst Parish Church. I have moved around a lot but spent most my childhood growing up around the Guildford and Surrey area. In 2018 I graduated with a degree in Youth Work and Theology from Oasis college, whilst studying for my degree I spent three years as a student youth worker for a Church in Luton.
I love working alongside young people and have experience working with young people in Churches, schools, youth cafes and parks.I have a real passion to see young people thrive in life and to share with them about Gods love for them.
In April 2019 I got married and in my spare time I like to go for long walks with my husband and binge watch TV shows.
Jenny has been a Churchwarden since April 2014. Her additional responsibilities include Pastoral Co-ordinator, Chair of Finance, Fabric and Fundraising Team and helping with Children’s Work.
