Howard Smith


“After a varied and fulfilling 48 year career as an electrical engineer and latterly as a Quality Manager in Aerospace, and responding to an earlier call to ordination as a young man, I finally was ordained as a Priest within a few days of my retirement from Airbus at the age of 64.

I have been happily married to Maggie for 46 years and we are blessed with 3 daughters and 6 grandchildren.
   

My main hobbies and interests are walking (especially cliffs) music (especially classical Baroque and playing the guitar in worship) and to keep my brain active, computing, cryptic crosswords and Sudokus.                                                                                                                         

My heartfelt desires are driven by 3 key cornerstones of the Christian faith, namely, the glory of God, the pain of the world and the renewal of the church.
 

In these exciting days of mission and outreach I look forward to serving this community and God to the best of my ability”
