Diocesan press releases

New era for training in Llandaff

Llandaff Diocese’s former Lay Training officer Julie Davies is the new St Padarn’s Tutor in Llandaff.

Julie, who is married to Father Martyn Davies, Area Dean of the Vale of Glamorgan, joined the diocese as its Lay Training Officer in July 2015, and switched roles earlier this year.

In her new post she is responsible for training for ministry and discipleship for ordained and lay people within the diocese.

“I am delighted to have been appointed to this role. For a long time I have felt called to a role within the Church in Wales that enables me to work with both lay and ordained people to develop discipleship and ministry,” said Julie.

A former nurse and teacher, Julie previously worked as a trainer for Consult Capital in Cardiff, delivering health and safety training across South Wales.

The St Padarn’s Institute was set up last year to lead all ministry training in the Church in Wales. As an all-Wales institute, it delivers courses at sites across the country.
