Pen Portrait of our Associate Priest, the Rev Carol Davies

Born in Ilfracombe, North Devon to an English mother and a Welsh father, Carol came to Swansea with her parents and younger brother as a young child. Devon remains an important part of her life and she visits relatives whenever possible.  She has travelled widely and lived abroad for a time with her first husband, John and their two sons, Kerry and Craig.  After becoming widowed Carol returned to Britain with her two sons and took up a post with HM Customs & Excise where she eventually met and married her second husband Tony; sadly Tony died in 2014.

Carol has been involved in many areas of church life in the CinW and was a licensed Reader before training for ordained ministry at St Michael’s College, Llandaff where she graduated with a BTh.  She spent her curacy in the Parish of Llwynderw.

Carol and her sons maintain a close relationship; Kerry lives with Sarah in Cardiff whilst Craig and Claire live in Gloucestershire with their two children, Megan and Harry
