Hello, my name is Paul Glass. I'm married to Janet and we are delighted and excited to be joining the Wey Valley Circuit. I am really looking forward to being part of the ongoing journey of faith that we all make together.

I was born and raised in Leatherhead and first became part of the Methodist Church in the Sunday Night Youth Fellowship there. Moving to Leeds University to read English and History Janet and I met in Meth Soc and my first job was as pastoral assistant at Elm Hall Drive in Liverpool working with the University Chaplaincy.

I trained for the ministry at Wesley House in Cambridge and served as probationer minister in the South Leeds Circuit at Hunslet and Middleton. We then moved to Ilkley (Addingham, Ben Rhydding and Beamsley) before being asked to consider the school chaplaincy at Ashville College in Harrogate. After 8 years there we moved to Wakefield where I was Superintendent of the Circuit. We have moved to Guildford from Canterbury where I have been school chaplain at Kent College for fifteen years.

I enjoy writing material for worship (especially drama) and have had three books published and currently run a weekly blog of meditations based on the lectionary readings for each week. Janet and I also have a shared interest in development issues and have spent time in Malawi, Tanzania and Cameroon (with Janet also visiting Ghana and Botswana). My doctorate is in Church History and my area of study was ministerial training.

Over the years I have been involved in Methodist work with young people at a national level having been Pastoral Visitor to the Methodist Schools group and previously head of counselling for MAYC London Weekend. I believe strongly in a ministry of encouragement and I am really looking forward to working alongside all of you as we seek to discover God together.

My off-duty day is Monday.
