Julia and Sam Monaghan

We are pleased to welcome Rev Julia Monaghan to our circuit as a Minister without Appointment.

Both Julia and Sam, her husband, have written a short note of introduction below and we look forward to meeting them soon.

Greetings to the Wey Valley Circuit

I am Julia, I'm 57 and have been a Methodist Minister for 12 years, having been stationed in Birmingham and more recently in Leigh on Sea. Before this I worked for 25 years as a social worker in mental health and child protection. I am married to Sam; mother to Beth and Andrew; and grandma to baby Leon, born in May. I love reading, walking, gardening and finding God in an art gallery. I fund raise for cancer charities having suffered from 2 different cancers. I continue to live with the disease, but through prayer and the expertise of the NHS, I'm still making a noise about those things that are important to me, believing God still has work for me to do. Amen Rev Julia

I'm Sam, likewise 57. In terms of church life, I've been involved as a worship leader and enjoyed working with children and young people over many years, including Boys Brigade for the past 11 years. In work, I've recently joined Methodist Homes (MHA) as their CEO and am very much enjoying the challenges of the new role, part of which is seeking to strengthen the charity's links with the church. Outside work and church, I enjoy cycling, the gym and the theatre. "
