Rev Ruth Ridge

Pastorally in charge of St John's, Sudbury, Glemsford and Bradfield.

I'm minister with pastoral charge for churches in Sudbury (St John's), Bradfield and Glemsford.  I'm in my 14th year of ministry and live just outside Sudbury with my husband James, son Joshua and three cats and two rabbits.  I love the engagements and encounters that ministry brings and I enjoy  meeting new people as well as developing pastoral care within the church family.  I'm passionate about working together with other Christians from different backgrounds to serve the community, as I feel a shared witness can be very powerful and I'm very involved with Churches Together in Sudbury and District.  I appreciate opportunities to share and deepen faith through discussion and bible study, especially when it relates to current issues and practical action.  In my spare time I love walking, birdwatching, photography and cooking and I like to link these interests with my ministry in terms of hospitality, creative worship and an interest in green theology.
