Meet the Team
The Good Shepherd is made up of staff and volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds. Here are just a few of us!
Before ordination she was a Secondary School Operations Manager for 14 years. To ‘recharge’ Sue enjoys walking their dog, Ralph; embroidery; knitting and reading; and retreating to the sea.
She joined the ministry team at The Good Shepherd Church in August 2017 after serving the first two years of curacy in neighbouring, rural parishes; before ordination she was a teacher, working mostly in primary schools.
She is married with three children who keep her very busy!

He is married to Beverley and they have a daughter, three sons and two grandchildren. A perfect day for Ed would be walking in the Welsh border country, visiting as many medieval castles, churches and battlefields as possible, before watching his football team, Ipswich Town, win.
Nuhad has been married to Awad since 1979, living in Khartoum, Sudan for 16 years after they got married. They have a son and a daughter and have been blessed with 3 grandchildren.

He works full time for Network Rail and to relax he enjoys walking, gardening and the occassional meal out.
