It is with great pleasure that we announce Bishop June has appointed the Revd Jude Mitson to be the new team vicar in the Parish of Pontypridd.
She was ordained in 2015 and is currently curate at St Ann’s Manchester.
The city centre parish has offered Jude a wide breath of experience. Significantly St Ann’s became a focal point in the city, following the Manchester Arena bomb in May 2017. In the aftermath of the attack, it is estimated that 20,000 visitors walked through St Ann’s doors.
Jude is passionate about sharing the message of God’s love with all people. During her curacy Jude played a key role in developing St Ann’s outreach to the city centre homeless community.
As a student Jude studied art in Manchester and later trained as an actor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff. She then worked for several years as a teacher in East London, where she taught drama.
Jude is excited about returning to South Wales, to share in serving out God’s mission in the parish of Pontypridd.
